Performance with Donna Uchizono and Conversation with Hong-An Truong

Donna Uchizono’s work is characterized by layered fragility, bold gestures and vivid imagery. Charting new territory with each venture, she creates a framework and original vocabulary specific to the individual piece. Uchizono is drawn to a redefined sense of ‘virtuosity’ that extends the markers of skill and excellence to push against human standards of patience, endurance and minute, intensely detailed movement. Uchizono has worked across a range of disciplines and Donna Uchizono Company has been presented in theaters, museums, galleries and non-traditional performance venues throughout the United States, Europe, South America, Asia, and Australia. Uchizono has created work for notables Mikhail Baryshnikov, MacArthur Fellow David Hammons, Pulitzer Playwright Paula Vogel, and neurologist and writer Oliver Sacks. READ MORE


Hong-An Truong’s interdisciplinary projects 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, Art in General, Smack Mellon, and The Kitchen among others. In 2013 she was recipient of an Art Matters Grant, a Franconia Sculpture Park Jerome Fellowship, and a Socrates Sculpture Park Emerging Artist Fellowship. She was an artist-in-residence at the Irish Museum of Modern Art (IMMA) in 2015. Recent exhibitions include a two-person show at Nhà Sàn in Hanoi, Vietnam and at IMMA in 2016. She was recently awarded a Contemporary Art Foundation Emergency Grant for her solo exhibition at LUMP Gallery in Raleigh, NC. Truong was a studio art fellow in the Whitney Independent Study Program and is currently an artist in the Open Session Program at The Drawing Center in New York. She is an Associate Professor of Art at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
