  • York Chang (b. 1973, St. Louis, MO) is an interdisciplinary artist who uses forensic and archival information systems as supports for poetic gestures and alternate histories, in order to interrogate the aesthetic conventions of authority which often serve to blur the line between fiction and reality. He earned both his BFA (1996) and Juris Doctorate (2001) from University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA). York Chang lives and works in Los Angeles, CA, and is represented by Greene Exhibitions.

  • In this performance I try to summarize In search of past time with my own words, as a story of another time which reveals itself contemporary. I deliver my own intimate and personal perception of this book which radiates in my life. Each performance is another opportunity to explore different zones of the book, proceeding at random, inspired by an aleatory and fickle memory.

‘Mia, a Dancer’s Journey,’ at Film Festival in New York

Shortly before Mia Slavenska died in 2002, Maria Ramas, her daughter, made a promise: to tell her story. “She had spent many years feeling, as many artists do who outlive their fame and their time of creativity, that the dance world wouldn’t remember her and her contribution,” Ms. Ramas said in an interview. “It was really difficult for her to make peace with that.”
