Elaine Gan

Elaine Gan uses installation, performance, and digital media to study negotiations of power and movements of capital. Some of her works have taken visible form through the commitment of institutions such as New York Foundation for the Arts, Lower Manhattan Cultural Council, Bronx Museum of the Arts, Socrates Sculpture Park, Artists Space, Exit Art, and the New York Department of Cultural Affairs. Raised in Manila, Gan earned a degree in Architecture from Wellesley College, participated in the Whitney Museum of American Art – Independent Study Program, and lives in New York City. “Fast Car” is part of an ongoing series about globalization and cultural sites.
