Zhou Yan (b. Beijing) received his BFA in Visual Communication from the School of Design, Central Academy of Fine Arts, and his MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.

Zhou’s practice is often inspired by the circumstances under which individuals and populations coexist. Drawing upon episodes from the history of contemporary art and subcultures as references, his previous works frequently confront the entanglement between a specific site and an individual’s existential state. He is interested in using juxtaposition, displacement, and simulation as forms of exploration. The artistic mediums that he mainly engages with include video installation, interactive game, and artist books. His works have been exhibited at various international venues and programs, including solo exhibitions: “Pale Fire, ”SPURS Gallery, Beijing, 2020; “No Quarters,” the Bunker Space, Beijing, 2019; “West of the Sun,” PPPP space, Beijing, 2019; group exhibitions: Frieze London, London, United Kingdom, “Wake up Crying”, Centre for Experimental Film 2020; “The Ecstasy of Time: Reframing the Medium of Knowing”, He Xiangning Art Museum, Shenzhen, China, 2017; “The Stuttgart Filmwinter Expanded Media,” Stuttgart, Germany, 2017; “E.M.B.C.L”, Flux Factory, New York, United State, 2017.
