Allen Chen’s practice points to the less obvious structures that govern our behaviors and thoughts. These structures are often politically charged and they dictate how humans navigate through spaces. His works in sculpture, photography, and drawing reflect on the space and distance between man-made structures and the human body. He often conflates signals and markers of boundaries through a combination of abstract and ready-made materials. Allen Chen was born in Taipei, Taiwan and currently lives and works in Los Angeles. He earned his MFA in sculpture from Yale University. His work has been exhibited internationally, including in the recent Taipei Arts Award Exhibition at the Taipei Fine Arts Museum.

Laura Genes is an artist/architect interested in the logistical poetics of production.
