JSU Roars: Taiwanese visual artist brings Eastern and Western perspectives to the classroom

Taiwanese visual artist Chung-Fan Chang’s work has appeared across the country. Chang says her art communicates the beauty of life, and she brings both Eastern and Western perspectives to her creations.  Chang is an assistant professor of art and part of the esteemed faculty at Jackson State University. She was a co-curator of Horizon Realm: Contemporary Art from Taiwan, an exhibition that had been on display at the Dollye M.E. Robinson Gallery.

Chang said the exhibition was part of the learning experience for students. She said JSU’s Department of Art provides students with state-of-art facilities, outstanding visiting artists and scholars, and a diverse cultural emphasis to strengthen JSU’s heritage.

Chang was born in Taipei County, Taiwan. She received her education at Savannah College of Art and Design in Atlanta, where she received a Master’s of Fine Art. She also studied at Taipei National University of the Arts in Taiwan, earning a Bachelor’s of Fine Art.

Chang’s media include paper, painting and installation. Her work has been exhibited in galleries and museums throughout the U.S., including the Museum of Contemporary Art of Georgia, Rochester Contemporary Art Center and the Mississippi Museum of Art.

She received a grant as the 2013-2014 Visual Arts Fellow at the Mississippi Arts Commission and was the 2012 recipient of the ThinkTank 7 Emerging Educator Fellowship, Integrative Teaching International in Chicago.
