Her recent curatorial practice includes the research exhibition Metamorphosis: Art Practices Now Activating Archives and Public Memories (co-curator, OCAT Institute, 2018), Jimei-Arles International Photography Festival Discovery Award (nominator and curator, 2017) and Itinerant Assembly (co-curator, Gasworks and RCA, 2017). She also contributes to Art Newspaper Chinese and Art World magazine.
