Tuan Andrew Nguyenʼs practice explores strategies of political resistance enacted through counter-memory and post-memory. Extracting and re-working narratives via history and supernaturalisms is an essential part of Nguyenʼs video works and sculptures, where fact and fiction are both held accountable.

Guggenheim Museum and the Whitney Museum of American Art.
