Tiong Ang

Core Tutor
Within the complex oeuvre of Tiong Ang (Surabaya, 1961), certain common elements about the nature of identity, cultural meaning and social absorption emerge. Using media specific to his topic - whether (veiled) painting, film, video installation, social environments or curatorial projects - he explores people’s negotiations within an ethically and culturally hybridized world.

Tiong Ang studied at the Rietveld Academy and Rijksakademie of Fine Arts, both in Amsterdam. He participated in the 2010 Manifesta Biennale, 2004 and 2008 Shanghai Biennale, the 2001 Venice Biennale, the 1995 Istanbul Biennale and the 1994 Havana Biennale. He lives and works in Amsterdam.
