Tam Khoa Vu, 4_tkv_eyes (détail), 2023.

Tam Khoa Vu is an artist based in Tio’Tia:Ke / Montreal. His work challenges common representations and depictions of Vietnamese and Vietnamese-Canadian identity, while playfully opening up spaces of abundance, possibility, and nuance. Using various visual and digital art forms, his practice explores themes of production, manufacturing, power, representation, and identity through exploring the nuances of the “third space” of diasporic experience between Vietnam and Canada.  

Notable presentations of the artist’s works include Montréal Arts Interculturels (MAI), Montreal, QC (2022); ARTCH Emerging Artists Exhibition, Montreal, QC (2021), Eastern Bloc, Montreal, QC (2016). He has received grants from large and small scale funding bodies and institutions such as OBORO (2022), Canada Council for the Arts (2022), Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec (2022, 2021), and MAI (2022). In 2017, he completed his B.F.A at Concordia University in Design and Computation Arts.
