At once highly personal and broad in concern, Charwei Tsai’s work is grounded in a sense of Taiwanese identity. Geographical, social and spiritual interests inform her practice, which is directed towards activating participation rather than complacent contemplation. Tsai also edits, designs and publishes Lovely Daze, a biannual contemporary art periodical.

Solo exhibitions include Espace Culturel Louis Vuitton, Singapore (2012) and Sherman Contemporary Art Foundation, Sydney, Australia (2009), among other venues.

International group presentations include Phantoms of Asia, Asian Art Museum of San Francisco, USA (2012); Yokohama Triennale, Japan (2011) and the Asia Pacific Triennial, Brisbane, Australia (2009).
