Come celebrate the holidays with the Mini Microcinema!
Thu Tran is a New York based artist, performer, illustrator, multimedia designer, and enthusiastic champion of the charming and unusual.
Featured selections of her work from the last decade will include episodes of the cult IFC show Food Party, which she created and starred in, as well as animated shorts, music videos, and trailers for various interactive games she designed.
For an installation she created in 2015 at the The Museum of the Moving Image, curator Jason Eppink described her work as such:
Much of artist Thu Tran’s practice centers on mediated food: not the polished culinary culture frequently depicted on screen, but the improvisational, awkward, and even existential elements of contemporary home cooking. Many of her works, including cult TV hit Food Party, expose a fundamental strangeness that underlies the act of preparing and consuming meals, often deconstructing the very definition of food.
