In Xin Liu: Fellow Focus, MAD presents 2018 artist-in-residence Xin Liu.

Initially trained as a mechanical engineer, Liu thinks of science as her first language and uses this vernacular to tease out artistic nuance alongside scientific precision. Utilizing media that might be perceived as lacking in poetry, Liu presents deeply personal reflections.

Through the lens of space exploration, genetics, and geology, Xin Liu: Fellow Focus gazes both inward and into the Earth’s orbit, offering a self-portrait as expansive as it is intimate.

This is the sixth installment of the MAD Education Department’s Focus series, dedicated to highlighting the work of alumni of MAD’s Artist Studios program.

Xin Liu: Fellow Focus is curated by MAD Manager of Public Programs Lydia Brawner with support from Coordinator of Public Programs Marissa Passi.
