Tram Carin Luong

Tram (Carin) Luong’s work examines the interrelation between collective memories, historical trauma, and cultural representation. Her practice lies at the intersection of anthropology, visual arts, and public advocacy. She combines rigorous research with artistic mediation to arrive at new ways of investigating the rhizomatic connections between the past and present, between the lived reality of modern life and the turns of history. As such, the central tenets of her work include a range of thematic interests – the legacies of colonialism, the critique of Orientalism, and the understanding of ethnic differences, especially via the image of The Other. She is a Ph.D. candidate in Sociocultural Anthropology at Yale University (USA). She holds a B.A in International Studies and Studio Arts from Trinity College (Connecticut, USA) and an M.Phil from Yale University.

Her work has been featured at the Mather Art Gallery (Hartford, CT), the New Haven Documentary Film Festival (New Haven, Connecticut), Hanoi DocFest (Hanoi, Vietnam), and Ethnografilm Paris (France),…
