Hương Ngô

Chicago, IL


Hương Ngô is an artist whose research-based practice connects personal and political histories using a conceptual, interdisciplinary, and often collaborative approach. Performance and, alternately, the absented body and its traces are strongly present in her work, which often asks how the ideological imprints itself on our material realities and how we might make visible the process of our own subject formation. She was awarded the Fulbright U.S. Scholar Grant in Vietnam to realize a project that examines the colonial history of surveillance in Vietnam and the anti-colonial strategies of resistance vis-à-vis the activities of female organizers and liaisons. Her work, described as “deftly and defiantly decolonial” and “what intersectional feminist art looks like,” has exhibited at the MoMA, MCA Chicago, Nhà Sàn Collective, and The Factory Contemporary Arts Centre among others. She has been included in the 2005 Prague Biennial and Prospect.5 Triennial in New Orleans.
