About Mai-Thu Perret

Mai-Thu Perret (b. 1976 in Geneva from a Swiss father and a Vietnamese mother; first public exhibition in 2000) is a multi-disciplinary artist (sculpture, painting, video, installation, dance) living and working in Geneva. Getting her inspiration from socialist ideology and radical feminist politics, she is one of the chairs of the "The Crystal Frontier", a project "documenting" the fictitious life of a women's utopian community established in the desert of New Mexico.
