Thu Van Tran
b. 1979, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam/Lives and works in Paris
Working across a range of forms and materials, Tran uses her own experience as a cultural outsider – a Vietnamese woman living in France – to explore physical and cultural displacement and the history of colonialism—subjects that have become poignantly relevant in today's climate.
Her work has shown recently at Center for Contemporary Art, Hanoi; Moderna Museet, Stockholm; the 57th Venice Biennale; Neuer Berliner Kunstverein, Berlin; Kunsthalle Sao Paulo, Brazil; and Ladera Oeste, Guadalajara, Mexico. She was nominated for the Marcel Duchamp Prize 2018 and exhibited at Centre Georges Pompidou in the fall of the same year. Thu-Van Tran's works are included in public and private collections, such as Musée National d'Art Moderne, Paris; Kadist Fondation, Paris/San Francisco; MAC VAL, Vitry-sur-Seine, France; and Vehbi Koc Fondation, Istanbul, among others.
