Millian Jiang Pham
After trampling in the muddy rice fields of Vietnam then misreading product labels in the United States, Millian Giang Pham received her BFA in painting and printmaking from the University of Tulsa in Oklahoma and her MFA in sculpture from the University of Florida. Pham’s art practice stems from her traumatic childhood in Vietnam and the painful adaptation in her adopted America. Her works highlight the intangible effects of social and political structures on the body. She works with the materials of sculpture, fiber, video, drawing, collage, and verbal language through larger installations and performances. Her research has been exhibited nationally and internationally in Canada, Pakistan, Korea, and across the United States. Pham was a fellow for the I-Park Artist Enclave in East Haddam, CT, the Hambidge Artist Residency in Rabun Gap, GA, and the ACRE residency program in Steuben, WI. Pham is a resident fellow at the Santa Fe Art Institute’s Labor Residency for 2020/2021. She currently teaches art and has a studio in Alabama.
