Eva is a PhD student in the Art History and Visual Culture program at York University. She holds a BA in Visual Arts and Philosophy from the University of Western Ontario, and an MA in Modern Art from Columbia University.
Her primary research is on contemporary conceptual art and East Asian diaspora. Currently, her work is on the use of emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence in art. Her driving investigation is on how this potentially expands/constricts the conceptualization of form and the development of Eastern visuality in the context of the socio-political climate of the last half century. She is interested in the epistemological and ontological challenges from these new kinds of conceptual art forms and consequently the implications for global institutional collecting and exhibiting, the construction of identity, and more broadly East Asian visual culture.
