Kaitlin Chan is a graphic artist, curator, and writer based in Hong Kong. Her interests include comics, analogue photography, zines, queer culture, and the everyday.
Currently an assistant curator at Asia Society Hong Kong Center, she is exploring how exhibitions, printed matter, and visual culture can forge new dialogues. She has designed and illustrated for Asia Art Archive in America, The Vera List Center for Art and Politics, Wesleyan's College of East Asian Studies, The Center for Prison Education, and Art Agency, Partners. Her written and graphic work can be found in daikon* zine, Asian American Writers' Workshop's Transpacific Literary Project, and is forthcoming in Kodachrome magazine.

In collaboration with Beatrix Pang of Small Tune Press, she co-organized Queer Reads Library, a mobile collection of books and zines that envision queer futures. With over sixty works from Sweden, Japan, Singapore, the U.S. and Hong Kong, the library is an ongoing platform for openness and dialogue. QRL thanks Eaton Hong Kong for their support and partnership.
