Beichen Zhang (b.1993, Shandong, China) received his MFA from Maryland Institute College of Art in 2019 (United States). Focused on unveiling hidden histories through photography’s narrative structures, his artistic works often manifest in the form of photographs, essay films, mixed media installations and institutional research. Recently, he worked with a broad range of media to query and investigate the relationship of cultural heritages and Asian colonial history, archive and geopolitical vicissitude, and the identity’s fluidity within the post-colonialism context. His work is a set of a visual experience of a metaphorical method through personal narratives. Through the research of archaeology and anthropology, history, and other disciplines, he examines and builds a poetic visual language with its thoughts.

Zhang has exhibited in numerous international platforms such as the 8th Daegu Photo Biennale in South Korea, the 34th Image Forum Festival in Tokyo, the SPE (Social of Photography Education) Media Festival and 2022 Jimei X Arles International Photo Festival. He has received numerous international accolades and nominations, including the nominations for the Foam Paul Huf Award 2023, the nominations C/O Berlin Talent Award 2023, the Best Portfolio Prize of the 8th Singapore International Photography Festival (2022), the selected Artist of Top 20.21 Chinese Contemporary Photographer (2021), the Media Award of the 12th Three Shadows Photography Award (2020).
