Honi Ryan

Adjunct Faculty

Performance and installation artist and researcher.

Honi Ryan, born in Melbourne and based between Paris and Berlin, is an interdisciplinary artist with a nomadic social practice. At the intersection of sociopolitically engaged art, progressive pedagogy, and performative expressions of utopia, Ryan’s work has intercultural concerns and deals with the present body in relationship to others and their environment. Working with long term social-performance projects at the core of her practice, Ryan builds relationships as works of art by creating heightened encounters in everyday life. Her research interests focus on the role of art in peace mediation and sustainability, creativity in the everyday, unlearning, and the artistic residency.
