About the Artist
Anh Bui (1993) is a San Francisco-based visual artist and curator. Born in Hanoi, Vietnam, and traveling to the United States at the age of 10, Anh uses art to confront his trans-cultural experiences, and place these experiences within a wider sociopolitical and cultural context. The resulting bodies of work investigate and subvert dominant narratives concerning nationhood, race, the immigrant experience, and masculinity.
Anh received his Master’s Degree in Museum Studies at San Francisco State University (SFSU) in Fall 2017, with a focus on Curation and Education. His final thesis is titled “Arts and Society: How Vietnamese Independent Arts Organizations Serve and Impact Communities.”
Anh received his B.A in Studio Arts at SFSU with a dual emphasis on Sculpture and Painting in 2014. He has exhibited with the de Young Museum, Kearny Street Workshop, 111 Minna Gallery, Incline Gallery, and Intersection for the Arts. Between 2018-2019, he 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.
