Friday Night Talks With Theresa-Xuan Bui

August 4 @ 6:00 pm

Location: Adirondack Center for Writing, 15 Broadway, Saranac Lake, NY 

Meet writer and performer Theresa-Xuan Bui, who is currently an artist in residence at Craigardan in Elizabethtown, NY. Bui recently appeared in Upper Jay Art Center’s performance, “The Monarch Report.” As a writer and artist, Bui asks, “How will I establish space for my loved ones, my sisters, the liminal, radical, exquisite, unseen, and all the more? To answer, I write.” Explore their work at www.bui.house and bring any questions you have! 

Theresa-Xuan Bui (they/them) is a queer non-binary Vietnamese-American artist questioning the intersections of the personal and political as a means to critically imagine the future. Through drawing and dancing, they translate their embodied practice into a performance of language and sound. The work does not seek to answer or proclaim, but rather, openly and recklessly process the self within larger power structures. They are a princess of the Bui household, a legacy of Vietnamese refugees and vanguard Asian-Americans. Born and raised in Bronx, NY, Theresa moved to Houston, TX before pursuing a BFA at the Maryland Institute College of Art (MIC/A).
