Headshot of Dan S. Wang

Dan S. Wang/王念華 was born in Michigan, currently lives in Madison, Wisconsin, and works in the global Midwest. He has lectured widely, including at Documenta 11, the Central Academy of Fine Arts in Beijing, and the Third Creative Time Summit. He works alone and in collaboration with others. He splits time between organizing, studio production, and writing. His printmedia work circulates through both contemporary art networks and functional activist situations, and his writings have been published internationally in journals, exhibition catalogues, and book collections. Along with Anthony Romero, he co-authored the conversation-essay The Social Practice That Is Race.

When he is not causing art troubles or making political gestures, he can be found running the register in his dad’s restaurant in Chicago.
