About artist:

Tammy Nguyễn  (b. 1984, lives and works in New York) is a multimedia artist whose work spans painting, drawing, silkscreen and book making. Intersecting geopolitical realities with fiction, her practice addresses lesser-known histories through a blend of myth and visual narrative. She is the founder of ‘Passenger Pigeon Press’, an independent press that joins the work of scientists, journalists, creative writers, and artists to create politically nuanced and cross-disciplinary projects. Born in San Francisco, Nguyen received a BFA from Cooper Union, NYC, in 2007. The year following, she received a Fulbright scholarship to study lacquer painting in Vietnam, where she remained and worked with a ceramics company for three years thereafter. Nguyen received an MFA from  Yale University in 2013 and was awarded the Van Lier Fellowship at Wave Hill, USA, in 2014. She has exhibited at the Rubin Museum,  NYC; The Fine Arts Museum of Ho Chi Minh City and the Bronx Museum, NYC, among others. Her work is included in the collections of Yale University, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, MIT Library, the Seattle Art Museum, the Walker Art Center Library, and the Museum of Modern Art Library, USA.
