Fei has gained global recognition and exhibited at biennials in Shanghai, Moscow, Sydney, Istanbul and Venice. Her meteoric rise has seen London’s Tate Modern, New York’s Museum of Modern Art and the Palais de Tokyo all screen her productions. In 2016, she received the highest honour from the Chinese Contemporary Art Award. The following year Fei became the youngest and only Chinese artist to design a BMW Art Car, joining a list of illustrious former contributors including Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein. Using augmented reality technology, she created the series’ first digital vehicle.
In 2019, her project, HX, was the first-ever solo exhibition held by a Chinese artist at Centre Pompidou, Paris. The show focused on the history of the post-industrial neighbourhood surrounding her Beijing studio, once a former community cinema, and included the acclaimed feature-length film Nova.
