Tammy Nguyen (born 1984) is a Vietnamese-American artist based in New York City. She is best known as a painter, creator of artist books, and founder of Passenger Pigeon Press, an independent mixed-medium art publication.
Work and career
Nguyen's works often focus on mythology and the legacy of colonialism.
Artspace wrote that “Nguyen’s paintings pull no punches, using frank, directional color and frenzied brushstrokes to convey the nightmarish spectre of subjectivity under oppression. By remixing Vietnamese myths in a Western context, Nguyen examines the erasure of Asian-American experience in art imagery, creating arresting portrayals in a variety of medial iterations.”
In 2016, Nguyen founded an independent publisher, Passenger Pigeon Press, which produces a publication, Martha's Quarterly. Critic John Yau described Martha's Quarterly as “part manifesto, part a gathering of texts, with the intent to examine, contemplate, challenge, and refute.”
In 2018, she became an artist-in-residence at the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council Process Space program and an Asia Delegate for the Carnegie Council.
