Biography An Te Liu (Tainan, Taiwan, 1967)

An Te Liu was educated at Victoria College, University of Toronto and the Southern California Institute of Architecture, Los Angeles. His work overlaps the fields of art, architecture and design, and explores the aesthetic of mass-produced commercial and urban design. By working at the junction between these three areas, he questions the idea of function that traditionally marks the boundaries between art and design. In 2008 he had solo shows at the Künstlerhaus Bethanien, Berlin and MKG 127, Toronto. He has participated in many group shows such as Therefore Beautiful, Ursula Blickle Stiftung, Kraichtal (2005); Modelle für Morgen: Köln, European Kunsthalle, Cologne (2006); the 11th Venice Biennale for Architecture, Venice (2008); 246 and Counting, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, San Francisco (2008); Figuration, The Art Institute of Chicago, Chicago (2008); and Future Has Arrived, Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, Louisiana (2009). In 2006 he exhibited at Witte de With as part of the group exhibition Street: behind the cliché. His work is represented in different private and public collections such as the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and the Art Institute of Chicago.
