Pu Yingwei

1989, Shanxi, China

Now work in

Beijing, China

Pu Yingwei, (b.1989, Shanxi, China) currently lives and works in Beijing, China. He received his BFA from Sichuan Fine art Institute in 2013, DNSEP (MFA with Félicitation du jury) from École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts de Lyon in 2018. Pu Yingwei's work has been defined as an exercise in conceptual art with a strong utopian zeal. He is the artist who interprets the multiple media and identity narratives that he practices in the public sphere as a comprehensive mobilization. Taking personal history as an absolute starting point, with the exhibition, writing, design, lecturing, teaching, and other forms of work, he attempts to produce a kind of “meta-politics" that transcends grand topics such as race, nation, and ethics. Such politics is as complex and full of paradoxes as the reality we experience.

At OCAT Shanghai, Pu Yingwei's work was exhibited in the exhibition Frontier: Re-assessment of Post-Globalisational Politics (2019) and The Circular Impact: Video Art 21 (2021).

In 2020, Pu Yingwei curated Sino-Wharf from Chinatown to Red Internationalism for "OCAT Screens"  at OCAT Shenzhen.
