Anh Ha Bui (1993) (any pronouns) is a visual artist and curator currently based in Houston. Born in Hanoi, Vietnam, and traveling to the United States at the age of 10, Anh uses art to investigate their body, experiences, and desires as they falls into tension with dominant constructions of nationhood, race, gender, and neurotypicality.
Anh received their Master’s Degree in Museum Studies at San Francisco State University (SFSU) in Fall 2017, with a focus on Curation and Education. Their final thesis is titled “Arts and Society: How Vietnamese Independent Arts Organizations Serve and Impact Communities.”
Anh received their B.A in Studio Arts at SFSU with a dual emphasis on Sculpture and Painting in 2014. They has exhibited with the de Young Museum, Kearny Street Workshop, Á Space, and Intersection for the Arts. Between 2018-2019, they was a Curatorial Resident at SOMArts, a part of Root Division’s Curatorial Committee, and a member of Kearny Street Workshop’s APAture Curatorial Committee.
Most of Anh’s work were produced on land stewarded by the Muwekma Ohlone people (San Francisco, CA) and land originally stewarded by the Tāp Pīlam Coahuiltecan and the Sana band (Cypress, TX).
