BFA Fine Arts presents an online visiting artist lecture with artist Thao Nguyen Phan.

Trained as a painter, Phan is a multimedia artist whose practice encompasses video, painting and installation. Drawing from literature, philosophy and daily life, Phan observes ambiguous issues in social conventions and history. She exhibits internationally, with solo and group exhibitions at Tate St. Ives, England (2022); the Venice Art Biennale, Italy (2022); Chisenhale Gallery, London (2020); WIELS, Brussels (2020), Rockbund Art Museum, Shanghai (2019); Lyon Biennale, France (2019); Sharjah Biennial, UAE (2019); Gemäldegalerie, Berlin (2018); Dhaka Art Summit, Bangladesh (2018); Para Site, Hong Kong (2018); Factory Contemporary Art Centre, Ho Chi Minh City (2017); Nha San Collective, Hanoi (2017); and Bétonsalon, Paris (2016), among others. In 2019 she was shortlisted for the Hugo Boss Asia Art Award.

In addition to her work as a multimedia artist, Phan is co-founder of the collective Art Labor, which explores cross-disciplinary practices and develops art projects that benefit the local community. She is currently expanding her “theatrical fields,” including what she calls “performance gesture and moving images,” and is a 2016 – 2017 Rolex Protégée, mentored by internationally acclaimed, New York-based, performance and video artist Joan Jonas.

Phan lives and works in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.
