Jacqueline Hoàng Nguyễn completed the Whitney Independent Study Program, New York, in 2011, having obtained her MFA and a post-graduate diploma in Critical Studies from the Malmö Art Academy, Sweden, in 2005, and a BFA from Concordia University, Montreal, in 2003. She has been awarded many grants and fellowships, and her work has been exhibited internationally. In 2015, she was the first artist-in-residence at the Museum of Ethnography in Stockholm. The residency was part of SWICH—Sharing a World of Inclusion, Creativity and Heritage—a collaborative project involving ten European museums of Ethnography and World Cultures. She is currently co-editing Crating the World: Displaced Myths, Desires and Meanings, a compendium to Nguyễn's exhibition Black Atlas (2016), presented at the Museum of Ethnography. Based on archival photographs, the publication and the exhibition explore the implications of the administration of racialized labour for transporting material culture from foreign countries to the museum's storage.
