Faculty

Chang Yuchen teaches Graduate Seminar in the School of Dance. To her, a class is a sculpture built in time, the shape of which is determined by the reciprocal interplay of all parties. Hence, pedagogy is an art of hospitality, of making space and of relational aesthetics.

Biography

Chang Yuchen is an artist based in New York. She works in an interdisciplinary manner—writing as weaving, drawing as translation, teaching as hospitality and commerce as experiment (see Use Value). By constantly entering and exiting each medium, she strolls against the category of things, the labor division among people.
