Her love of materials, from heritage textiles and fashion to colonial objects, historical architecture, ethnography and mythology, coupled with the experience of growing up within communities of mixed cultural backgrounds and urban sites provide the content and context for her work. Her latest solo exhibition was held at several museums in the U.S., including Frist Art Museum (2021), Fowler Museum at UCLA (2020), San Jose Museum of Art (2019), Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts (2018-19). She participated in numerous international exhibitions, such as 57th Venice Biennial (2017), Busan Biennale (2016), “Greater New York” at the MoMA PS1 (2015, 2005), the 55th Venice Biennale (2013), the 7th Asia Pacific Triennale of Contemporary Art (2012), Yokohama Triennale (2011) and the Whitney Biennial (2000).
