Huidi Xiang is an artist and researcher. She was born and raised in Chengdu, China, and is currently based in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA. She holds an MFA in Art from Carnegie Mellon University (2021) and a BA in Architecture and Studio Art from Rice University (2018).
In her practice, Huidi makes sculptural objects, installations, and systems to examine world-making processes and the coexistence of multiple contexts and narratives in late capitalism. With a playful yet forensic artistic language, she reinterprets and complicates existing constructed ideologies. The alternative narratives proposed in her work reveal critical issues and power dynamics hidden behind ideas taken for granted, thus creating subversive allegories for our contemporary life.
Huidi’s artwork and design work have been exhibited nationally and internationally, including Miller ICA in Pittsburgh, PA, USA, Center for Architecture and Design in New Orleans, LA, USA, South London Gallery in London, UK, Yiiie Gallery in Chengdu, China, and in video game Minecraft. Huidi has also completed some artist residencies, including ACRE (2021), Ender Gallery Minecraft Residency (2021), the Millay Colony for the Arts (2020), Contemporary Calgary “Collider” In-Residence Artist Residency (2020), and Project Row Houses Summer Studios (2016).
