stephanie mei huang is a Los Angeles-based interdisciplinary artist currently completing her MFA in Art at the California Institute of the Arts. Her work concerns itself with critical scripts of notions around authority, expansionism, and displacement. Through research and practice, she examines the arbitrariness of the distribution of state power and syntax of national identity, traversing territories of confrontation, rupturing violent mythologies that perpetuate settler colonial narratives, and excavating forgotten, erased, and partial 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.
