About Ngoc-Tran Vu

Ngoc-Tran Vu (she/her) is a 1.5-generation Vietnamese-American multimedia artist and organizer whose socially engaged practice draws from her experience as a cultural connector, educator, and lightworker. Tran threads her social practice through photography, painting, sculpture and audio so that her art can resonate and engage audience with intentionality. Her work evokes discourse of familial ties, memories and rituals amongst themes of social justice and intersectionality. She is an adjunct faculty in Asian American Studies at the University of Massachusetts Boston. Tran works across borders and is based in Boston’s Dorchester community.

How You Can Work Together

“As an artist, organizer, and cultural producer, I enjoy creating and implementing a variety of leadership, exhibitions, engagements for multilingual and intergenerational communities on social justice issues. In addition, I have an extensive background working with the arts and media for social change and maintain an invaluable national network of educators, artists, philanthropic and community-based leaders.”
