Interdisciplinary artist Hong Hong will discuss the development of her site-responsive, monumental paperworks, as well as the relationship between the artist and contemporary landscapes.

Born in Hefei, China, Hong Hong is an interdisciplinary artist whose practice spans
papermaking, installation, and performance. Her work explores the human perception of
landscape in contemporary settings and the conditions that shape it, such as
meteorological events and migration. Hong earned her MFA in 2014 from the University
of Georgia and her BFA in 2011 from the State University of New York at Potsdam. Her
work has been exhibited across the United States in shows at Real Art Ways, Madison
Museum of Art, Newhouse Center for Contemporary Art, Pittsburgh Center for the Arts,
New Mexico History Museum, and Georgia Museum of Art. Hong is the recipient of
grants and commissions from Foundation for Contemporary Arts, Center for the Arts at
Wesleyan University, Edward C. & Ann T. Roberts Foundation, Greater Hartford Arts
Council, and Artspace New Haven. She has been an artist-in-residence at PLAYA, the
Morgan Conservatory, and I-Park. Hong currently lives in Connecticut, where you can
find her making paper in empty parking lots, petting other people’s dogs, or working on a
yearlong, site-specific project called Everlasting Ephemera.
