Anh Bui 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.
