Wang is an artist born in Taipei, Taiwan. Her art series, inspired by her personal experience of motherhood in 2000, has garnered international acclaim since 2007. Her work has been invited to exhibit at numerous festivals both at home and abroad, including the 2007 Manchester Photography Festival in the UK, the 2013 Ulsan International Festival in Korea, the 2019 Biennial Photography of Geneva in Switzerland, the 2020 Festival Images Vevey in Switzerland, and Photoville 2020 in New York, the 2021 Daegu Photo Biennale in Korea, "Aesthetics of Identity" in Peru, "I Belong to This" in London, the 2022 Photolux Festival in Italy, International Festival of photography in Australia and SHERO" at the Tainan Art Museum in Taiwan. Also, the 2023 Mesnographies International Festival of photography in France.

Wang shared that over the past few years, she has received numerous invitations from around the globe. From the excitement at the beginning to the calmness now, she takes pride in not only sharing her own ideas with the world, but also finding fulfillment in contributing to society as an artist. "The Mother as a Creator" has been invited to various countries, shining a light on the often-overlooked role of motherhood, challenging conventional definitions, and uncovering the boundless creativity of mothers. "My ultimate goal is to give mothers the rightful place they deserve in human history," Wang said.

Taiwan is a pioneer for gender equality in Asia. Wang's "The Mother as a Creator" project is an example of this. Created by Wang twenty-two years ago, the project has continued to evolve, showcasing the ability of Taiwanese artists to offer contemporary perspectives on women's issues and stay attuned to current trends. Wang will join the show in New York.
