Alison Nguyen’s work explores the ways in which images are produced, disseminated, and consumed within the current media landscape, exposing the socio-political conditions from which they arise. Creating strategies for dissent, she re-articulates mainstream visual language in video, installation, and new media works.

She has presented work at e-flux, Ann Arbor Film Festival; Oberhausen International Short Film Festival; CROSSROADS presented by San Francisco Cinematheque and San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; Channels Festival International Biennial of Video Art, Melbourne; CPH:DOX; Microscope Gallery, New York and AC Gallery, Beijing, and the Dowse Art Museum, New Zealand, among others.
