Welcome Lu Xu, Artist In Residence

The Forge is pleased to welcome our first ever Artist in Residence, Lu Xu! LuXu

Lu is originally from Guiyang, Guizhou, Southwest China and began her schooling in Beijing for Public Finance at CUEB where she received a BA. Her move to the United States was prompted in 2009 after she accidentally enrolled in a sculpture class through an international program. She recently received her MFA in Studio Arts from the University of North Carolina, Greensboro.

Lu’s work, predominantly sculpture and performance art, focuses on renewing the perception of the mundane. We are excited to host Lu through August. During this time, Lu will give an artist talk.

To see Lu’s work, check out her website: luxuartist.com

Each Triad company will have ten minutes to present their future innovation needs and then will host a five minute Q & A session. After the event, audience members will have two weeks to post confidential solutions to presenting company’s needs inside a private online community platform. The presenting companies will review submissions and contact audience members directly to discuss next steps.
