Artists Now! Guest Lecture Series: Antonius-Tín Bui
Antonius-Tín Bui (they/them/theirs pronouns) is a spontaneous shapeshifter and poly-disciplinary artist with roots all over the country. They play in the realms of hand-cut paper, community engagement, performance, and soft sculpture to visualize hybrid identities and histories that confront the unsettling present. Their identity as a queer, genderfluid, Vietnamese-American informs the way they employ beauty as a refuge for fellow marginalized communities. They are the child of Paul and Van Bui, two Vietnamese refugees who sacrificed everything to provide a future for their four kids and extended family. Born and raised in Bronx, NY, Antonius eventually moved to Houston before pursuing a BFA at the Maryland Institute College of Art (MIC/A). Since graduating in 2016, Antonius has been fortunate to receive fellowships from the Vermont Studio Center, Kala Art Institute, Tulsa Artists Fellowship, Halcyon Arts Lab, Houston Center for Contemporary Craft, Yaddo, Anderson Center at Tower View, The Growlery, and Fine Arts Work Center.

All 2021-22 lectures will be FREE and offered virtually as pre-recorded events. Series supported in part by the UWM Black and Gold Committee & Differential Tuition funds, Frederick R. Layton Fund, the John Colt Memorial Art Fund, The Queer Curatorial Fund, Print Club, and OBJECT.
