He has exhibited widely, including shows at Numark Gallery and the Corcoran Gallery of Art (DC), Yancey Richardson Gallery (NYC) and Robert B. Menschel Gallery (Syracuse), and was featured in the 2002 Whitney Biennial. Chao teaches at George Washington University and the Corcoran College of Art and Design.
