Quyên Nguyễn-Hoàng, from Hanoi, Vietnam, is pursuing a PhD in art history at Stanford School of Humanities and Sciences. She received a bachelor’s degree from Stanford University. Working bilingually in English and Vietnamese on modern and contemporary art, Quyên is inspired by cultural and linguistic practices that generate non-elitist spaces of generosity, play, and communion. Her writings have appeared in Poetry Magazine, Columbia Journal, The Margins, and various anthologies. Her publications include Masked Force (Sàn Art, 2022), the pamphlet-catalog to the exhibition of Võ An Khánh’s wartime photographs that she curated in 2020, and a forthcoming English translation of Chronicles of a Village, a novel by the Vietnamese author Nguyễn Thanh Hiền. She has received awards and fellowships from the Institute for Comparative Modernities, the Gabo Prize for Literature in Translation, and Words Without Borders in partnership with the Academy of American Poets, among other honors.
