Tina Nguyen (she/her) is an interdisciplinary artist based in so-called Vancouver (the unceded territories of the Musqeaum, Tseilel-Watuth, and Salish people). She works in installation, sculpture, print, textile, writing, and social practice. Her work is community centered and site-specific, drawing inspiration from communal spaces in which people interact, play, or become invisible. Her practice draws inspiration from immigrant labor, globalization, and asian diaspora, in which she draws from her family history with displacement, exploited labor, and resource extraction. In her work, she aims to represent and include communities excluded from the western fine arts narrative.
