Be­fit­ting her cre­den­tials as the hottest cre­ative tal­ent in Asia, the inim­itable Chen Man made her US de­but in March at Den­ver’s Red­line gallery with a solo ex­hi­bi­tion, A New At­ti­tude. The show re­flected the evo­lu­tion of Bei­jing-born Chen’s ca­reer, from fash­ion pho­tog­ra­pher to artist. Her abil­ity to trans­form su­per­mod­els into space nymphs, ori­en­tal war­riors or an­cient god­desses with art­ful post-pro­duc­tion tech­niques, tack­ling is­sues from gen­der to pol­i­tics along the way, has seen her pub­lished on the cov­ers of in­no­va­tive Chi­nese art and fash­ion mag­a­zines, along with es­teemed in­ter­na­tional ti­tles Vogue, Elle, ID and Esquire. Chen launched a sec­ond US show at the Los An­ge­les gallery LA Lou­ver in De­cem­ber. On this ev­i­dence, ex­pect a gallery of her own to fol­low soon.
