In a world where many individuals struggle to connect with their jobs, Wang stands out as someone who finds personal fulfillment in her professional endeavors. She firmly believes that pursuing projects that align with her personal interests allows her to truly identify her focus. Wang’s journey into the realm of art consulting began in 2018 when she embarked on a new experience driven by her innate curiosity. Initially unfamiliar with the field, she was captivated by the process of assisting non-art entities such as companies or public spaces in discovering artists and artworks.
In 2018, Yahan Wang undertook a project when she’s working at nAscent Art. The objective was to source artists and artworks for a hotel project on behalf of a client. Given the hotel’s concept, Wang meticulously conducted research on the theme to refine the selection of artworks. Her diligent efforts culminated in a well-received proposal that successfully met the client’s requirements. The process of connecting artists with individuals who genuinely appreciated finding the perfect artistic match brought Wang immense satisfaction. Inspired by this experience, she aspires to continue her pursuit of bridging the gap between art and other sectors of society.
Her role as an Art Administrator has provided her with valuable insights into her optimal position within the art market. Through this experience, she has gained a heightened understanding of her desired career path: that of a multifaceted liaison capable of curating, designing, consulting, and fostering connections within the art industry. A significant portion of her present responsibilities revolves around curation, encompassing the organization and selection of exhibitions, projects, and designs. Her overarching objective is to facilitate meaningful connections between artists and their audience, translating conceptual ideas into visually captivating experiences. Moreover, she aspires to provide expert consultation to individuals with a keen interest in art collection. These long-term aspirations serve as her guiding vision in the pursuit of professional growth.
Currently, Yahan Wang also serves as the curator for the latest exhibition, Ways of Seeing, at the esteemed Museum 54. The exhibition highlights the topic of women’s identity throughout history, and the passive positions traditionally imposed upon them in paintings. The exhibition features artworks from six emerging female artists, presenting their unique narratives from a proactive female perspective. Ways of Seeing premiered at the Museum 54 located in Tribeca, New York, in March 2023. For Wang, the experience provided a wealth of knowledge about the intricate aspects of venue selection, installation, marketing, and other crucial exhibition details. She felt that her efforts were validated when the exhibition garnered positive feedback from diverse audiences, particularly women, on how they interpreted and related to the artworks.
