Hương Ngô is a multidisciplinary artist whose work often incorporates performance, time-based media, and sculpture. She was recently awarded the Fulbright US Scholar Grant in Vietnam to continue a project (begun at the Archives Nationales d’Outre-Mer in France) that traces the colonial history of surveillance in Vietnam and the anti-colonial strategies of resistance vis-à-vis the activities of female organizers and liaisons. The project, To Name It Is To See It, fleshes out identity and visibility as territories that both colonizer and colonized manipulate to achieve personal agency or state sovereignty. Ngô was born in Hong Kong and is currently based in the US. She is a graduate of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, where she studied Art & Technology, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where she received her BFA in Studio Art, and recently a studio fellow at the Whitney Independent Study Program.
