Dorcas Tang 邓佳颖 is a third-generation Chinese-Malaysian artist and photographer currently based in unceded Gadigal land (Sydney, Australia).

Through her work, she seeks to question ideas of belonging, constructions of memory, and investigate intersections of cultural and gender identity. She explores these themes through the transnational Chinese diaspora spanning from Central America to Southeast Asia. 

Ultimately, she aims to make a mark in history that has deemed her community forgettable.

Dorcas is a member of Authority Collective, WomenPhotograph, and
Diversify Photo (Up Next)
