Jue Yang: An Introduction

I like words and space. I guess you can call me one of the following based on your preferred framework: text-based artist, trans-media writer, writer for performance, playwright.

Perpetual intrigues: the death of the artist, experiential knowledge, (personal) truth.

For the impatient reader: my recent portfolio and cv.


I have been exploring different spaces in my practice. I do so by participating in artist residencies, often in which life is discussed fiercely.

  • Self-directed Residency @ Mothership NYC. Brooklyn. 2018/3.
  • Enter Text @ Arteles Creative Center. Haukijärvi, Finland. 2017/11.
  • Arctic @ La Wayaka Current. Sørøya, Finnmark, Norway. 2017/8.
  • The Lab Program @ Pandeo. Mexico City, Mexico. 2017/5. link


For a period of time I found freedom in being a playwright and engaging with the collaborations in theater.

Identities in Transition

Three (older) portfolios summarize my education and experiences as a cartographer, aspiring architect, and technologist.

Inklings of a Practice

I created independent projects before I knew the shape of a practice, which included everything from alternative visual archives to poetry. I'm thankful for this period of blind productivity.
