Min Wong

Presented with searing intensity, Min Wong’s work tackles rediscovery and exploration of her multicultural heritage, migration and displacement. Focusing on her family’s heritage and migration experience, her practice investigates cultural loss, dispersal by migration and the dynamics of migrants being overwhelmed by dominant cultures. Wong resides in Darwin, Northern Territory. She was born in Australia of Chinese and Anglo-Saxon descent – a fact that is integral to her working practice. In 2007 Wong completed a Diploma of Graphic Design, Charles Darwin University, NT. She also holds a Bachelor of Visual Communications (Honours), University of Technology, NSW. Wong is currently the Exhibition Designer at the Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory. Recent solo exhibitions include Ring Mum if you want to get dead in 2011 at 24HR Art – NT centre for contemporary art and at Darwin Visual Arts Association. In 2011, Wong was preselected for the Toga Contemporary Art Award and participated in international exhibitions including Immemorial: Reaching back beyond and a group exhibition in Jogyakarta, Indonesia. In 2010, she was preselected as one of the NT artists for the Qantas Foundation Award and in 2011 participated in Red Gate Gallery residency in Beijing.
