Aug 22nd 2020

**This event will be hosted on Zoom on August 22.

To be selected as a potential interviewee, please email with the subject heading And And And—Stammering: An Interview.**

As part of the exhibition, “Alien vs. Citizen,” join us for a performance in the format of an interrogation that explores the process one would experience in attempting to become a US citizen. And And And—Stammering: An Interview (2020) is an ongoing performance and installation project that draws upon complex questions of immigration, exclusion, and the performance of belonging. In this event, artists Hương Ngô and Hồng-Ân Trương’s directly engage a randomly selected audience member, while also prompting all audience members to imagine their own responses.

This performance will take place on Zoom.  Attendees of this event are invited to choose between being part of two levels of participation: a group of visible witnesses with the possibility of being the selected interviewee, or a group of anonymous observers.


Since 2009, Hương Ngô and Hồng-Ân Trương have collaborated on projects that reframe questions of value through the critical lenses of identity, gender, and class. Their collaborative work has exhibited at the MoMA, Nasher Museum, and the Phillips Collection, among others. Hồng-Ân is based in Durham, North Carolina where she is an activist and teacher. She is an associate professor at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill and was a Guggenheim Fellow in 2019. Hương Ngô is an assistant professor at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and was recently a Fulbright US Scholar in Vietnam.
