stephanie mei huang is a Los Angeles-based interdisciplinary artist currently completing her MFA in Art at the California Institute of the Arts. Her practice concerns itself with critical scripts of notions around authority, expansionism, exceptionalism and their subsequent consequences: erasure, displacement, and violence. Through research and practice, she examines the arbitrariness of the distribution of state power and the constructed narratives and fallible paradigms that uphold such power. Traversing territories of confrontation, her practice visualizes systems of control and erodes the violent mythologies that perpetuate settler colonial narratives, in the hopes of excavating partial, erased, and forgotten histories. She specifically examines the American West as a repository of all discourses as products of modern diasporas. She is the recipient of a Getty Foundation grant and has taught at non-profits such as the Marfa Studio of Arts and Venice Arts.
