Nhung Walsh is an independent curator and art professional from Hanoi, Vietnam. She has participated in cultural programs at UNESCO and worked on on Vietnamese cultural heritage and development projects in northern and central Vietnam. Walsh has also worked in projects with museums, institutions, and independent art spaces in Singapore, Thailand, Japan, Taiwan, Hongkong, the United States, and Vietnam. She holds master’s degrees in international studies from Tokyo University of Foreign Studies, history from The University of Alabama, and art administration from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
Her research and curatorial projects explore subjects of anti-narratives in the politics of war memories; the unconscious influences of daily images and its relationship with cultural censorship; and technologies as medium and languages in new media art.
Her projects in Vietnam aim to contribute to the conversations that widen the boundaries of contemporary art, building a new generation of art audiences in Vietnam, and help young people to appreciate art, protect heritage, and create new values through art.
