Hồng-An Trương uses photography, sound, video, and performance to examine histories of war and immigrant and refugee narratives through a decolonial framework. By interrogating archival materials, she examines the production of knowledge through structures of time and memory. Her interdisciplinary projects are premised on the concept that aesthetic battles are also political and ideological battles. Her work has been shown internationally including at the International Center for Photography (NY), Art in General (NY), Fundación PROA (Buenos Aires), Istanbul Modern (Istanbul, Turkey), The Drawing Center (NY), The Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University (NC), and The Kitchen (NY), among others. Most recently, she exhibited in Prospect.4 New Orleans: The Lotus in Spite of the Swamp, and her collaborative work with Hương Ngô was included in Being: New Photography 2018 at the MoMA.

Truong received her MFA at the University of California, Irvine and was a studio art fellow in the Whitney Independent Study Program. She is an Associate Professor and Director of Graduate Studies for the MFA Program in the Art Department at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill.
