Ari Larissa Heinrich


Ari Larissa Heinrich writes about contemporary visual cultures from China, Taiwan, and Hong Kong, with a focus on experimental works that employ biological materials like body parts, pathological specimens, and organic chemicals. He has published books and essays on Chinese and transnational visual cultures, on medical illustration, and on queer theory, and is also known for translations of key works of queer literature from Taiwan in the late 20th century. Ari teaches experimental art writing, queer and speculative fiction, and Chinese Studies—as well as the intersections thereof—and has lectured on topics ranging from the history of medical photography to the exhibition of Chinese cadavers in internationally circulating anatomical displays. Ari is the recipient of an ARC Future Fellowship (2012) and a Creative Capital/Andy Warhol Foundation Arts Writers Grant (2019).
