About

Soko Fong Negash is a Toronto born visual artist of Chinese-Eritrean descent. She's a Cancerian (read: has a lot of feelings), likes making things with her hands, and plays between the realms of documentary film, photography, audio compositions, and material arts. Soko holds a BFA from Ryerson University, and is a graduate of the international arts incubator, The Remix Project. She recently finished a month-long photography residency at The Robert McLaughlin Gallery in Oshawa. Currently, she is a participant in This is Worldtown's Behind The Dust program for women of colour media-makers, as well as, Gallery 44's Low-Res Intensive course. She has worked as a talent producer on projects like Netflix's Hip-Hop Evolution docu-series. Her work is the grapplings of a second-generation kid trying to make sense of displacement, memory, and cultural/generational translation.
