CURRENT

Nancy Lee is a Taiwanese-Canadian interdisciplinary media artist, curator, DJ and cultural producer. Their work stimulates and enlivens space, making a provocative statement about how inescapably interconnected we are with our surroundings. This notion of staging is a constant in Nancy’s work and underpins their projects, from their early work as a filmmaker, through their conception of live events, and into the realms of XR, new media performance and installation, where their art practice continues to coalesce and evolve. Lee co-founded CURRENT, a feminist intersectional and multidisciplinary initiative, featuring artistic and educational programming. Their interdisciplinary works have been presented at Cannes Film Festival, SXSW, MUTEK.JP, Berlin International Film Festival, Vancouver International Jazz Festival, and more. They are an XR instructor at IM4 Media Lab at Emily Carr University and artistic mentor at Festival of Recorded Movement. They also run a DIY studio in Vancouver Chinatown hosting cross-genre shows, workshops and residencies. As a Sundance Institute New Frontier Alumni, Lee has been collaborating with Kiran Bhumber on a speculative sci-fi exhibition UNION, exploring 3D scanning/printing, XR, and multi-channel sound and video installation. They recently completed a sci-fi writing program at the School for Poetic Computations in NYC.
