Conrad Cheung is an artist whose practice couples transdisciplinary, collaborative, and ethnographic processes with wide-ranging artistic methods and media to address various urgencies, including post-truth and related crises of knowledge, the empathic and affective demands of democracy, crises of public space and commons, and most recently, sustainability in the face of multispecies extinction. Cheung’s work spans installation, performance, VR, cyberintervention, and more, and they collaborate regularly with practitioners across creative and academic disciplines.

Before joining the University of Virginia, Cheung served previously on the art faculty at Colorado College. They hold an MFA as the 2021 Eldon Danhausen Fellow in Sculpture from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, as well as a BFA and a BA in Philosophy from Alfred University. They have exhibited internationally, in Canada, France, China, and the US, and are the recipient of numerous awards and grants, including from the Canada Council of the Arts, the British Columbia Council of the Arts, and the American Craft Council.
