Viv Qiu

Viv is an artist and organizer based in the Bay Area, co-parented by Chinese immigrants and the internet. They are a zealot for the experimental, the speculative, and the absurd. Focusing on projects that center access and archival, they shift between object and theory, aesthetic and systemic. Currently, they split their time between researching vessels for memory, training as a death doula, stewarding a meme-page, and running Output Field (a non-profit art organization gathering a database of people, collectives, & projects in experimental arts & research).
