Minette Lee Mangahas‘s process-based projects layer calligraphic painting, sculpture, animation, and performance in installations that often explore themes of migration, spirituality, identity and language. She uses mark-making as a method for creative ethnography, often telling stories through collaborative, community-based projects that integrate traditional and contemporary technologies. Based in Asia and the United States, her work has been featured internationally in exhibitions and festivals at venues such as the Chinese Biennial in Beijing, the Pacific Asia Museum in Los Angeles, the Oakland Museum of California, and the Arario Gallery in New York.
