With an undergraduate background in Economics, I have since worked with a private art gallery practice in my hometown of Chengdu, Sichuan, China, as well as a period of internship in
Shenzhen and a collaboration with the artist Cang Xin's art project, The Teeth Altar. I decided to come to the UK to study curation at Exeter. My main focus was to work with local artists and to be involved in helping to develop artistic activities. So during my internship, I worked on the 2023 curatorial Art Vending Machine project in Exeter and also undertook a placement at Art Work Exeter. I gained an insight into how local artists and festivals communicate with each other and how large-scale projects are carried out.
