Lives and works in Ho Chi Minh City

Tuan Andrew Nguyen (b. 1976) is a multimedia artist who explores identity, memory, and history and their complex interrelationship within the context of exile and cultural estrangement. He earned a BFA from the University of California, Irvine, in 1999, and received his MFA from the California Institute of the Arts in 2004. He co-founded Sàn Art, an artist-run exhibition space in Ho Chi Minh City (est. 2007), and is a founding member of the artist collective The Propeller Group (est. 2006). The group appropriates marketing and advertising strategies to investigate power structures and economic systems, and often focuses their work on Vietnam and the rapid rise of capitalism in this formally Communist country.
