Lê Thuận Uyên is an independent researcher and curator currently living and working in Hanoi. Her work investigates alternative histories of Vietnam, bringing to light personal narratives rendered absent, unknown or undesirable by the official historical record. Her projects often involve close collaboration with artists and investigate current socio-political contexts and their impact on artistic production in Vietnam. From 2014–2016 she was general manager of Nhà Sàn Collective—a Hanoi-based artist-founded institution that aims to support and challenge evolving artistic scene, creating room for new forms of expression, production and exchange. Her curatorial projects and collaborations include: Miền Méo Miệng, Skylines With Flying People, Embedded South(s), and a forthcoming Gang of Five retrospective exhibition (2017). Lê holds a BA in Politics from the University of York and MA in Cultural and Creative Industries from King’s College London. She is in residence at Art in General from April–August 2017 through the support of the Asian Cultural Council.
