Cong-Tam Nguyen (they/them or he/him) is a multidisciplinary visual artist primarily working in installation/sculpture, textiles, and drawing. Their work is rooted in an ongoing dialogue with romantic and familial love in their life; as a queer, non-binary person who comes from a family of Southeast Asian refugees, Nguyen has had experiences with love that feel laborious yet necessary in a world that is governed by white cis-heteronormativity. Employing fictional narratives and world-building as strategies to process and meditate on lived experiences, their practice seeks to become an act of love itself. Nguyen holds a BFA in Painting from Rhode Island School of Design. Most recently, they were an artist-in-residence at Textile Arts Center in Brooklyn from 2019-2020.
