Alejandro Junyao Zhang (born 1995 in Yulin, China) is a Chinese interdisciplinary artist who builds relations between performance, 3D animation, video, electronic music, experimental images, and installation, currently based in Minneapolis, MN. His art practice focuses on the visibility of the Chinese queer identity and the composition of the physical or virtual identity habitats by utilizing the space, architectural props, and virtual reality through post-club aesthetics.

In 2020, Zhang worked with Simone Forti, American Italian postmodern artist, reperforming her piece “Cloths” (1967) in Walker Arts Center in Minneapolis. He has participated in solo and group exhibitions in Minneapolis, Shanghai, and Yulin. After graduation from Shanghai Ocean University with a double degree of Bachelor of Business and Bachelor of Management, now Zhang is pursuing an MFA in Visual Studies at Minneapolis College of Art and Design.
