Ren Hang

Ren Hang was born in Jilin province, Chang Chun city, China. He works and lives in Beijing. In 2010 Ren was awarded The Third Annual Terna Prize for Contemporary Art. His work has been exhibited and published extensively in books and magazines in China and abroad. His solo books include: REN HANG and ROOM (2011). His work is carefully staged although alludes to spontaneity and the snap shot. These exploitative and intimate photographs explore the sexuality and fetishism of China’s modern contemporary youth subculture.

Small Talk is a photography collective comprised of seven women: Audra Osborne, Briana Cerezo, Jennifer Timmer Trail, Kelli Pennington, Kristina Hruska, Leslie Hickey, and Marico Fayre. As a group, we explore the nature of what it means to be a visual storyteller, pool resources, provide support and critique, and facilitate community events and discussions. We engage in the best kind of "small talk," that which binds us together both as a collective and within a larger community of women and minority artists, fostering stronger work and collaboration. Our first book, We're Always Touching by Underground Wires, was published in April 2018.
