Hồng-Ân Trương’s interdisciplinary projects using video, sound, photography, and performance examine structures of time, memory, and the production of knowledge by engaging with archival materials, individual and collective narratives, and histories that span cultural and national borders.

Her work has been shown at the International Center for Photography (NY), Art in General (NY), Smack Mellon (NY), The Kitchen (NY), Momenta Art (NY), and the Nasher Museum of Art (NC), among other venues. In 2013 she was the recipient of an Art Matters Grant, a Franconia Sculpture Park Jerome Fellowship, and a Socrates Sculpture Park Emerging Artist Fellowship. Her work was selected for inclusion in Artists’ Film International, in which her work traveled to shows at Whitechapel Gallery (London), Istanbul Modern (Istanbul, Turkey), and Fundación PROA (Buenos Aires), and City Gallery Wellington (Wellington, New Zealand). She was an artist-in-residence at the Irish Museum of Modern Art in 2015 and participated in a two-person exhibition programme there in 2016 called Art | Place | Memory. She recently exhibited work at Nhà Sàn in Hanoi, Vietnam with her regular collaborator, Huong Ngo. She received her MFA from the University of California, Irvine. She was a studio art fellow in the Whitney Independent Study Program from 2008-2009 and is currently a studio fellow in the Open Sessions Program at The Drawing Center in New York (2016-2018).
