Tong Zhang


Inspired by daily moments, Tong Zhang's work aims to present occasions in which affective experience can be fully addressed while still leaving the viewer in a state of unknowing. His practice bridges memory and personal experience with today’s life to raise the question, “what those ordinary moments from daily life could mean?” Tong's interdisciplinary practice and commitment to creating these unknown atmospheres have taken him to the United Kingdom, China, and across the United States including exhibitions in Elysium Gallery, Swansea, UK; Milk Gallery, New York City; Attleboro Arts Museum, Massachusetts; Tucson Museum of Art, Arizona; Museum of the Central Academy of Fine Arts, China. He is the recipient of many awards including two The Elizabeth Greenshields Foundation Grant 2017 and 2018, The Sam and Adele Golden Foundation for Art Residency and two George J. Vander Sluis Award 2016 and 2018 among others. He holds an MFA from Syracuse University and China Academy of Art and a BFA from Xi'an Academy of Fine Arts in China.
