Artist and public space revolutionary Candy Chang knows how to start a conversation.
Artist Candy Chang knows how to start private conversations in public. Her thought-provoking installations ask neighbors to engage with their communities, giving a collective voice to those otherwise unheard. Sometimes with just a simple piece of chalk, Chang motivates thousands to participate, to reflect, to declare and to think. To Chang “every passerby is another person full of longing and anxiety and fear and wonder.” She’s vowed to bring them all together through their own words and reflection, gifting them with the experience of solidarity and community. Her thought-provoking installations are sprucing up spaces everywhere, from the Mojave Desert to Kazakhstan.
