The Low Residency Visual Studies Program is pleased to welcome visiting artist Pao Houa Her for a public lecture on her work and practice.

Pao Houa Her embraces photography as a language with the potential to, in her words, “tell the stories I wish to tell about geography, displacement, sexuality, and beauty.” Her was born in Laos, and she and her family are Hmong, an Indigenous people who primarily live in Laos, Myanmar, southwest China, Thailand, and Vietnam. When she was a child, Her’s family moved as refugees to St. Paul, Minnesota, home to a large Hmong population. Her’s work is featured in the 2022 Whitney Biennial and an upcoming solo exhibition at the Walker Art Center.
