Alison Nguyen is a multidisciplinary artist whose practice centers on the conceptual relays between photography, text, and performance art. She uses tangible and temporal materials such as film, hand-built cameras, and alternative photographic processes to explore more abstract questions about time, memory, and fiction.
Nguyen graduated from Brown University in 2009 with a B.A. in Literary Arts. Since, she has exhibited widely at both non-traditional and traditional venues including the Tribeca Project Space, The Flux Factory, The Rogue Space, 440 Gallery, The Target Gallery, The Westside Rifle & Pistol Range, and Gallery Hanahou. She has received awards and residencies from Mensa, Nikon, The Santa Fe Photographic Workshops, Brown University, and the New York Community Trust.
Nguyen’s images have been published in the New York Times, 22 Magazine, La Petite Zine, and will be featured in O.H.W.OW. Gallery Press’ forthcoming book Random Attitudes. Nguyen’s writing has been featured in publications such as Art & Revelry, The New York Times, Juxtapoz online, The Center for Alternative Photography’s Journal, and the Journal of New Jersey Poets.
