Pixy Liao

b. 1979, Shanghai, China

Pixy Liao is a multidisciplinary artist whose practice covers photography, installation, and performance. Liao is known for her staged photography, where she poses with her partner, Moro, who is Japanese and five year her junior. Her works challenge the traditional gender roles in heterosexual couples, humorously revealing the multitude of ways to be together.

Liao’s solo exhibitions include “Your Gaze Belongs to Me”(2021) at Fotografiska, New York, “Choose Your Own Adventure” (2020) at SCOPE Hannover, Hannover, Germany and “UNE RELATION EXPÉRIMENTALE”(2019) at the Rencontres d’Arles in Arles, France. Liao has also participated in exhibitions and performances in institutions internationally, including How Museum, Shanghai, China (2020); National Gallery of Australia, Sydney (2020); Open Eye Gallery, Liverpool, UK (2019); the Museum of Sex, New York, USA (2017); Asia Society, Houston, USA (2016); and Firstdraft Gallery, Sydney, Australia (2016); He Xiangning Art Museum, Shenzhen, China (2014).

Liao currently lives and works in New York.
