Author: Hui-min Tsen

Hui-min Tsen's work explores the act of exploration itself with an emphasis on the individual's everyday relationship with place, wonder, and the unknown. Through a series of projects ranging from boat-building to walking tours, she has sought to cross the distance between here and over there by reaching for the myth and mystery present in our everyday landscape. She received a BFA from Tisch School of the Arts, and an MFA in photography from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Since moving to Chicago she has been an active member of the arts community, showing and publishing with Hyde Park Art Center, Gallery 400, MDW Fair, and Proximity Magazine, among others. She has participated internationally in screenings, group exhibitions and performances at venues including Public Culture Lecture Series, the Macedonian Museum of Contemporary Art in Greece and Neighborhood Public Radio's This American Life at The Whitney Biennial 2008. Jason Foumberg placed her project "On the Trail of a Disorderly Future; A Chicago Pedway Tour" on his top ten list. She currently teaches photography and video at Wright College.
