Ryan Goh is an interdisciplinary artist, who works primarily with video and installation. Rooted in longing, Goh’s work contemplates loss and faith, attempting to reconcile hope and futility within an ambiguously redemptive gesture. Born and raised in Singapore, Goh is currently earning his BFA at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Goh has been awarded the full-tuition Overseas Teaching Scholarship, the Nippon Presidential Award, the SAIC Distinguished Merit Scholarship, and is part of the SAIC Scholars Program. Goh’s work has been shown at film festivals, screenings, and exhibitions in Singapore, Chicago, Berlin and Rome.
