Chi Nguyen is an interdisciplinary artist based in Brooklyn, New York. She uses textile art, painting, interactive performances, and writing as platforms to reflect contemporary issues dealing with feminism, war resolutions, globalization, and the search for one’s identity. Her view on these subjects is greatly influenced by her childhood in Vietnam and subsequent move to the United States. In exploring the nuances of these topics, she attempts to find her self and a space where she belongs.
In the past, she has worked with the United Nations Popular Fund in Vietnam to raise awareness in areas of women’s rights, domestic and gender-based violence, social security for the elderly, and population development. Before joining the Center of Reproductive Rights as a Graphic Designer in 2014, she worked at MFA Design for Social Innovation at the School of Visual Arts as a Designer and Project Coordinator. She is also an Artist-in-Residence at the Textile Arts Center.
