Gary Zhexi Zhang

Gary Zhexi Zhang is an artist and writer. He is currently writing and editing a book of fictions, essays and interviews about these financial fictions, weird temporalities and catastrophe, called Catastrophe Time! (Strange Attractor Press, 2023).

The opera he co-created with Waste Paper Opera, Dead Cat Bounce, premiered at Somerset House in 2022. His last solo exhibition, Cycle 25, documented events that shape the boundaries between speculative belief and the material world, like natural disasters, scam nations and cosmic economies.

In 2023, he will be artist-in-resident at EPFL, Lausanne and inaugural R&D fellow at Rockbund Art Museum, Shanghai. He is a Lecturer at Goldsmiths MFA and taught previously at Parsons School of Design.

Recent/upcoming books and chapters include Against Reduction (chapter, MIT Press, 2021), Incomputable Earth (chapter, Bloomsbury, upcoming), Platforms:Around, In Between and Through (Singapore Biennale, 2023); Future Art Ecosystems III (with Victoria Ivanova; Serpentine, 2022).
