Brandon Tho Harris (b.1995, Houston, Texas) is an interdisciplinary artist and arts professional based in Houston, Texas. His creative practice explores his identity as a child of war refugees. By examining the Vietnamese diaspora in relation to his family history, he can understand and process intergenerational trauma. Harris’ work incorporates self-portraiture, his family archives, and historical images portraying the Vietnam war. Through the use of photography, video, performance and installation, he allows the viewers a deeper understanding of the complexities surrounding migration.
Harris' work has been featured in exhibitions at Asia Society Texas (2021), Houston Center for Photography (2020) and the Blaffer Art Museum (2019). Harris' projects have also been funded by grants from The Idea Fund and Houston Art Alliance. He received his BFA in Photography and Digital Media from the University of Houston and currently the Manager of Engagement and Communications at FotoFest.
