Kehan Lai is a photo-based artist who lives between New York and Shanghai. Her work straddles between the simulacrum and the authentic, transforms the mundane into the symbolic, and explores the materiality of photo prints. Her practice comprises a laborious process of information-gathering, material-assembling, and scene-building.

She is pursing an MFA degree at Bard College and received a BFA degree from Parsons School of Design. Her recent solo exhibitions include “Undulation” (EDA, Shenzhen, 2023); group exhibitions include “Center Annual” (Houston Center for Photography, Texas, 2023), “Art Nova 100” (Guardian Art Center, Beijing, 2023), “Unbound 11” (Candela Gallery, Richmond, 2022), and “Rea Arte” (Fabbrica del Vapore, Milan, 2022). She was the finalist for The New Photography Award at the Ballarat International Foto Biennale (Ballarat, 2019) and completed an artistic residency at Swatch Art Peace Hotel (Shanghai, 2021-2022).

Kehan is also the creator behind the photography podcast Iridescener.
