Ziui Chen Vance, who had recently moved with her family to Philadelphia, applied to the FRIEDA call for artists and was selected to exhibit in the curated show VOICES. After organizing a workshop and participating in many FRIEDA community events, Chen gifted a participatory art project, “The Love Pavilion,” to her adoptive FRIEDA family.
Chen received an M.F.A. from the Stamps School of Art and Design, University of Michigan, where she was awarded a research fellowship to investigate product design interface systems for visually impaired persons. She earned a B.A. in Industrial Design from the Academy of Art and Design, Beijing, and studied painting at the Sichuan Fine Arts Academy, Chong-Qing, China.
As an artist and product designer with 25 years of calligraphy and painting training and a partner in UVXYZ focused on establishing socio-spatial equilibriums through design, Ziui’s interests are in imagining new objects based on the visual language of emotions. She has displayed her work in national and international galleries. Ziui has worked with a variety of internationally renowned companies to perfect their visual brand. Most notably are Lining sportswear, Ebay China, and Siemens (New Jersey), where she worked on domestic interface systems.
You can find more of Ziui’s work at FRIEDA on 320 Walnut Street or check her website.
