Yue Wu Portrait.png

Yue is an independent curator and writer. Her academic interests lie in avant-garde movements, revolutions, text-based art, art/activism and global Maoism. Her academic pursuits delve into the global 1960s, the intricate social and cultural fabric shaping aesthetics, and the intersection of art, technology and politics in the contemporary world.​

 

Yue received M.A. in Regional Studies East Asia at Harvard University and B.A. magna cum laude in Art History from New York University. Her M.A. thesis “Revolutions write Large: A Study of Dazibao” was honored with the Fletcher Award for Best Thesis, bestowed upon only 2-3 students annually. The thesis delves deep into the history, materiality, and international legacy of dazibao, or big-character-posters.

Apart from the academic pursuits, Yue has been active in the art world. She curated exhibitions in museums and galleries. She realized digital exhibition "Guerrillas in Flatland: Unite! Digital Voyagers" with $50k at China's largest public contemporary art museum, Power Station of Art Shanghai in 2020, showcasing art in a unique online environment, replicating and subverting familiar digital interfaces. She also coordinated the first oversea retrospective show of artist Xu Bing at Museum MACAN, the first in Indonesia to have a collection of modern and contemporary art. She was selected for the digital research trip by Pro Helvetia Swiss Arts Council in 2022 and has been working on a new digital community initiative for artists, curators and researchers.
