Pixy Liao

b. 1979, Shanghai, China

Liao is a multidisciplinary artist whose practice covers photography, installation and performance. Liao is known for her staged photography, where she poses with her boyfriend-turned-muse, Moro. Her works challenge the traditional gender roles in heterosexual couples, humorously revealing the multitude of ways to be together.

In 2019, Liao had a major solo exhibition at the Rencontres d’Arles in Arles, France. Liao has also participated in exhibitions and performances in institutions internationally, including the UCCA Center for Contemporary Art (Beijing, China); He Xiangning Art Museum (Shenzhen, China); the Museum of Sex (New York, USA); Asia Society (Houston, USA); Open Eye Gallery (Liverpool, UK); and Firstdraft Gallery (Sydney, Australia).

Liao currently lives and works in New York.
