Jes Fan’s work speculates on the intersection of biology and identity. Their works propose an expanded notion of biological and bodily materiality rooted via an investigation of transgender politics, body modification, and applied science. Fan is the recipient of various awards, such as the Joan Mitchell Painters and Sculptors Grant, Van Lier Fellowship at Museum of Arts and Design (MAD), Pioneer Works Residency, and John A. Chironna Memorial Award at RISD. Recent solo shows include “No Clearance in Niche” at MAD Museum, NY; “Disposed to Add”, at Vox Populi Gallery, PA; “Ot(her)” Brown University, RI. Fan holds a BFA in Glass from Rhode Island School of Design and is currently working in Brooklyn, NY.
