Greyson Hong received her M.F.A. in film and video from Bard College (2014) and her B.F.A. in studio art from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (2007). She was born in Chicago, IL, and lives in New Haven, CT, where she teaches video at the Educational Center for the Arts and Gateway Community College. She also studied at the Summer Studio Program at Oxbow School of Art (2004), with a concentration in Glass and Sculpture, and the United States Naval Academy (2002), with a concentration in Chemistry and Mathematics. She is currently the Artist-in-Residence at Artspace New Haven.
Greyson Hong is a new media and performance artist whose work explores memory, loss, personal histories, narrative form, displacement, and the body. Her work pulls from personal experiences to contemplate the choreographies of space, trained bodies, and the way we use non-verbal language to communicate via sound, light, and gesture. Her recent work attempts to imagine impossible realities of the queer gendered body. In Costco Photo Repair, she hires Costco to digitally re-gender her childhood photographs. The center photo of each triptych presents the in-between stage, introducing a third space beyond the gender binary.
