CANCELED | Albert Chong (b. 1958) is a photographer, sculptor, and installation artist. Born in Kingston, Jamaica, Chong came to the United States in 1977, where he received a BFA from the School of the Visual Arts. In 1991, he received an MFA from the University of California, San Diego. Across analog and digital forms, Chong’s works “infer, relate, connect and signify the complex nature of the struggles of the displaced peoples of the Asian and African diaspora.” Chong’s work has been shown around the world, including at the International Center of Photography in New York City, the California African American Museum, the São Paulo Biennale, the Havana Biennial, and the Venice Biennale. He is a recipient of many awards, including a 2008 Guggenheim Fellowship for photography. He is currently a Professor of Art at the University of Colorado in Boulder.
