Director of Graduate Studies in Studio Art

Hồng-An Trương uses photography, sound, video, and performance to examine histories of war and immigrant and refugee narratives. By interrogating archival materials, she examines the production of knowledge through structures of time and memory. Her interdisciplinary projects are premised on the concept that aesthetic battles are also political and ideological battles.

Her work has been shown internationally including at the International Center for Photography (NY), Art in General (NY), The Drawing Center (NY), The Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University (NC), Istanbul Modern (Istanbul, Turkey), and Fundación PROA (Buenos Aires), The Kitchen (NY), Nhà Sàn (Hanoi) and the Irish Museum of Modern Art (Dublin) among others. From 2016-2018 she was a fellow in the Open Sessions Program at The Drawing Center in New York. Most recently, she exhibited in Prospect.4 New Orleans: The Lotus in Spite of the Swamp in 2017-2018, and her collaborative work with Hương Ngô was included in Being: New Photography 2018 at the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York.
