Wen-Li Chen is a Taiwanese-born, Saint Paul-based interdisciplinary artist, arts administrator and graphic designer. Wen-Li is moved to both encounter and present intergeneration, dwelling and inheritance by way of oblique poetics, vulnerable histories, enduring relationships and personal experiences. Her artwork often takes the form of books, photo-essays, photography, video, found objects and installation. Art administration remains an ongoing outlet for Wen-LI, with a particular focus on providing rigorous and often challenging contemporary art to underserved rural communities in Taiwan.

Wen-Li has shown her works internationally and nationally. In addition she has done projects, received grants and collaborated with several international organizations, such as the Warhol Foundation (USA), Ministry of Culture (Taiwan), Taiwan Academy (NYC) and the National Culture and Arts Foundation (Taiwan).
