UuDam Tran Nguyen is a Vietnamese-born conceptual artist. He grew up in different parts of Vietnam and the USA. UuDam was trained as a sculptor at the HCM Fine Art University until 1994. He later got his B.A. from UCLA & MFA from the School of Visual Arts. He is now living and working in HCMC. UuDam Tran Nguyen’s artwork reflects his wide interests in many aspects of social issues. He transforms the boundaries between urban myth and popular legend to both celebrate - and warn - of the role and impact of human progress and its desire for social advancement. He is working with video, performance, photography, remote controlled sculpture robotics and new media. Nguyen’s playfully & provocative practice is today one of the prominent voice of Vietnamese contemporary art. UuDam has been exhibited internationally in the 4th Singapore Biennale, Asia Society Museum, RISD Museum, Kadist Art in San Francisco, the White Chapel gallery, the Jewish Museum NYC, Bildmuseet Museum, Jim Thompson Art..
