Trained as both a lawyer and an artist, York Chang makes conceptually driven work which considers how collective action is influenced by ambiguity, disorientation, and propaganda. He employs strategies of collage, décollage, redaction and interlineation as interventions into information systems, often appropriating legal contracts, books, archives, documentary films, and newspapers for use in his projects. He works across media, and has presented performances, created artist books and short plays, and produced paintings, collages and drawings, among other activities. The Orange County Museum of Art (OCMA) and the Vincent Price Art Museum (VPAM) recently showed concurrent solo exhibitions of Chang's work. Chang has also exhibited his work at various institutions, galleries, and art fairs in Los Angeles and internationally, including Commonwealth & Council, Greene Exhibitions, Samuel Freeman Gallery, Charlie James Gallery, 18th Street Arts Center, LACE, MAK Center for Art & Architecture, MassMOCA, and Edel Assanti in London. He is a 2014 California Community Foundation Fellowship Grantee.
