I am Maggie Wong, an artist, writer, and educator. I use facilitation, multisensory stimulation, and sculptural processes to make installations and performances, sound works, and workshops. Often I work on a project based collaborations. In my work, quotidian and domestic forms such as blankets, vinyl records, or letter writing become points for studying the social-emotional body and politics thereof. An exploration of how objects and subjects intermingle stems from a combined interest in daily affective life and the discourse of post-minimalism.
My sculpture and installation work has been exhibited in Chicago, New York, and San Francisco. My writing on art will be published in the book Take Care edited by curator Luna Goldberg, and the forthcoming exhibition catalog titled Material Meanings: Selections from the Constance R. Caplan Collection at the Art Institute of Chicago. I am the Associate Director of Iceberg Projects in Rogers Park and am an assistant teacher at the Art Institute of Chicago in the Learning and Public Engagement department. I hold a BA from Sarah Lawrence College and MFA from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Born in Oakland, California, and now live in Chicago, Illinois.
