Tammy Nguyen is a multimedia artist working with geopolitics, science, and lesser known histories.  She received a BFA from the Cooper Union in 2007 and an MFA from the Yale School of Art in 2013. From 2007-08, Tammy was a Fulbright Scholar in Vietnam where she studied traditional lacquer painting. She has exhibited at the Leroy Neiman Center, San-Art, The Fine Arts Museum of Ho Chi Minh City, the Bronx Museum, Wave Hill, Carriage Barns Art Center, Pyramid Atlantic Art Center, the Inside-Out Museum and the Ground Floor Gallery. In 2014, Tammy was awarded the Van Lier Fellowship at Wave Hill as well as inclusion in the Bronx AIM program.

Haas Family Arts Library at Yale University, the Joan Flasch Artist Book Collection, the Philadelphia Museum of Art Library,  and the Museum of Modern Art Library.  In Fall 2016, Tammy founded Passenger Pigeon Press, an independent press that brings the work of scientists, journalists, creative writers, and visual arts together to create politically nuanced projects.

Recently she was an artist-in-residence at the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council Process Space program and is an Asia Delegate for the Carnegie Council where she traveled to Indonesia to learn about radical Islam and counter-narratives.
