Tran, T. Kim-Trang

Tran, T. Kim-Trang was born in Vietnam and emigrated to the USA in 1975. She received her MFA from the California Institute of the Arts and has been producing experimental videos since the early 1990s. Her work has been exhibited internationally. In 1999 Tran presented her Blindness Series in a solo screening at the Museum of Modern Art. Two of her videos were included in the Biennial exhibition at the Whitney Museum of American Art, and the Blindness Series was featured at the 46th Robert Flaherty Film Seminar, both in 2000. Her video project, an eight-video series investigating blindness and its metaphors was completed in 2006. Tran has been nominated for a CalArts/Alpert Award in the Arts and was named a 2001 Rockefeller Film/Video/Multimedia Fellow. The fellowship has enabled her to develop an experimental narrative feature titled Call Me Sugar, based on the life of her mother.
