Vida Kuang

Statement

Vida Kuang was raised by a Toisan matriarch and the streets of Chinatown. She is an artist and educator. Her education comes from growing up in her family’s corner store, her work with youth in San Francisco, and community elders who mentor her growth. As a visual storyteller, her work centers her communities’ stories alongside a legacy of cultural workers, whose labor keeps her communities thriving. Her art practice is inspired by movements led by women of color for racial, gender, and economic justice. Vida’s work addresses the complexities and intersections of survival, healing, and memory. She uses audio, illustration, photography, and mixed media as tools for storytelling. Vida believes storytelling is one of the most fundamental ways to decolonize herself and her communities’ hearts and minds for collective liberation. (@vida.kuang)
