Models for Presentation and Monetization
Huidi Xiang (she/her) is an artist and researcher currently based in Pittsburgh. She holds an MFA in Art from Carnegie Mellon University (2021) and a BA in Architecture and Studio Art from Rice University (2018). In her practice, Xiang makes sculptural objects, installations, and systems to examine world-making processes, and the coexistence of the multiple contexts in late capitalism. Recent works explore the spatial and temporal effects of inhabiting both the virtual and physical worlds. With a playful yet forensic artistic language, Xiang’s work constructs a realm situated in-between, intending to articulate the emerging politics and critical issues associated with the ever-expansive merging between the physical and the virtual, the real and the simulated, and the fact and the fiction. Xiang's artwork and design work have been exhibited internationally, including Miller ICA, Center for Architecture and Design, and many more. She is currently an artist-in-residence at Ender Gallery, an exhibition space and artist residency that exists inside the video game Minecraft.
