ARTIST BIO: XYZA CRUZ BACANI (b. 1987, the Philippines) is an award-winning interdisciplinary artist and writer based in New York. Her experience as a second-generation domestic worker in Hong Kong informs her practice and engagement in less visible, erased, and underreported world events. Her works explore migration, transnational identity, climate change, and labor.


Bacani received her M.A. in Arts Politics at New York University in 2022 despite lacking an undergraduate degree. She has been recognized as one of Asia Society’s Asia 21 Young Leaders, Artpil’s 30 Under 30 Women Photographers, Forbes’s 30 Under 30 Asia, and BBC’s 100 Women of the World. Her artistic accomplishments are documented by the Philippines House of Representatives under ‘House Resolution No. 1969’. She received multiple grants from the WMA Commission, the Open Society Moving Walls Foundation, and the Pulitzer Center, and was one of the Magnum Foundation Photography and Social Justice Fellows. She is also the author of We Are Like Air.


Bacani’s work is in the permanent collections of the Museum of Contemporary Photography, Chicago, Kadist Collection Paris, San Francisco, Foreign Correspondents Club Hong Kong, Asian Art Museum, San Francisco, New York University Abu Dhabi, and numerous private collections worldwide.
