Sue Huang is an artist and researcher working at the intersections of new media, installation, and social practice. Her current work investigates our complex techno-cultural relationships to nature, exploring the ways that tactile, sensorial experiences of nature are mediated through emerging technologies. These explorations draw connections to the socio-political power structures which shape our environment, suggesting a way forward through collective imagination and action. She is currently working on a project with collaborator Brian House and double-bass performer Robert Black for the Freshkills Park Alliance in Staten Island and a project for Practice Gallery in Philadelphia.
Huang is a recipient of the University of Connecticut (UConn) SFA Research Grant (from the School of Fine Arts and Office of the Vice President for Research), the UConn Scholarship Facilitation Fund Grant (from the Office of the Vice President for Research) and the UConn SCHARP Development Grant (from the Humanities Institute and the Office of the Vice President for Research). She is also a recipient of the Robert Black Foundation Grant.
Her past solo and collaborative works have been presented at the Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA), Los Angeles, the Contemporary Arts Center (CAC) in Cincinnati, Rhizome at the New Museum in New York, Ars Electronica in Linz, Austria, the Mount in Lenox, Massachusetts, the Beall Center for Art and Technology in Irvine, California, and A.P.E. Gallery in Northampton, Massachusetts, among others.
Huang received her MFA from the department of Design Media Arts at the University of California, Los Angeles and her BS in Science, Technology, and International Affairs from the Walsh School of Foreign Service at Georgetown University. Huang is a co-founder of the media arts collaborative Knifeandfork (2004-2018) and currently serves as a member of the Events and Exhibitions Committee for the New Media Caucus, College Art Association, as well as the Courses and Curriculum Committee and the Undergraduate Studies Committee for the department of Digital Media & Design at the University of Connecticut. She is currently an assistant professor of Digital Media & Design at the University of Connecticut and an artist-in-residence at Cherry Street Pier.
