Assistant Professor/NTRC, Studio Foundations
Prior to coming to UA, Giang Pham taught at the University of Florida as a jack-of-all-trades in drawing, digital media, net.art, sculpture, mixed media, HONORS art, and graduate seminars. Pham also taught sculpture and three-dimensional concept courses at Santa Fe College in Gainesville, Florida. After receiving her MFA in sculpture in 2013, Pham worked as Gallery Director at the 4Most Gallery in Gainesville. In December 2015, Pham served as Guest Juror for the Association for Visual Arts Members Exhibition in Chattanooga, TN.
In her current visual research, Pham focuses on the intersection of class, culture, and the lived experience. Many of her ephemeral installations utilize drawing, video, sculpture, performance, and temporal markers (e.g. live plants, burning incense, etc.). Pham merges the language of visual art with the language of cultivation (rice and industrial farming) to create new connections related to class and culture. In the spirit of growth, she still seeks and participates in art+science collaboration and art performances.
At UA, Giang Pham teaches Drawing I and Two-Dimensional Design courses.
