Szu-Han Ho

Graduate Director

Associate Professor, Art and Ecology

Szu-Han Ho’s work in performance, sound, and installation explores the relationship between bodies and sites of memory. She often works collaboratively, through collective action, structured improvisation, and group composition. Recent projects include “MIGRANT SONGS,” a choral performance art piece based on stories and songs of human and nonhuman migration; and “Shelter in Place,” a sculptural installation and performance inspired by her family’s history in Taiwan. Szu-Han’s work has been exhibited at Tokyo Wonder Site (Tokyo, JP), SOMA (Mexico City), VSF (Los Angeles), Southern Exposure (San Francisco), Tulsa Artist Fellowship Flaship, Contemporary Jewish Museum (San Francisco), and Revolutions International Theatre Festival. Szu-Han has been a recipient of the MAP Fund (2023), Art for Justice Fund (2020), and Art Matters Grant (2019).

Szu-Han lives and works in Tiwa Territory (Albuquerque, NM) and is a founding member of the fronteristxs, a collective working on ending migrant detention and abolish the prison industrial complex.
