Rhode Island School of Design MFA
Inheritance is a group exhibition of works by four artists from the Rhode Island School of Design MFA program, who consider the limits and possibilities of inherited structures—be they familial, cultural, political, or scientific. Expressions of personal experience are bound up with wider social operations, with each artist using sculpture and installation as the primary means of navigating these layered dimensions.
About the Artists
Yingheng Huang creates installations, photographs, and video works. Huang’s configuration of mundane commercial products agitates heteronormative structures. Recent works explore the experience of a stationary state, created through labor, tension, and mutual restraint.

Mia Rollins is an installation artist, researcher, and critical theorist from Nashville, Tennessee. Their work investigates our individual relationships with digital technology and scientific fields, and explores phenomena such as virtual reality, artificial intelligence, astro, particle and quantum physics in their multimedia installations. Through these topics, Rollins proposes metaphors for memory, dreams, loss, desire and love in the human experience, extrapolating connections between the two fields to imagine a sort of posthuman humanism.
Wei Wang works with print media, video, sound, design, and performance to render the experience of Otherness. Queerness and Foreignness are central subjects in the artist’s work. Wei investigates the betwixt and between under the homogeneous timeline in order to trace the imprints by contextualizing one’s present.

In her work she explores undercurrents in contemporary society, conflating hierarchies between playful objects and materials to our body’s functionality and productivity.
