Kenneth Tam  Moving Image
Kenneth Tam is an artist who works with video, sculpture, installation, movement, performance, and photography. His work examines themes including the performance of masculinity, the transformative potential of ritual, and expressions of intimacy within groups. Tam often implicates the male body in his projects, using humor and pathos to create situations that foreground tenderness and vulnerability within unlikely settings.

He has had solo exhibitions at Commonwealth and Council, Los Angeles; Ballroom Marfa; Museum of Contemporary Art, Tucson; Institute of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles; Queens Museum; Madison Museum of Contemporary Art; The Kitchen, New York; Visual Arts Center, The University of Texas at Austin; Minneapolis Institute of Art; and MIT List Center for Visual Arts, Cambridge.

Tam is a recipient of a Foundation for Contemporary Arts Grants to Artists, New York Foundation for the Arts Fellowship in Interdisciplinary Work, California Community Foundation Fellowship for Visual Artists, and Art Matters Foundation Grant among others.

He is currently an assistant professor at Rice University and has a B.F.A. from the Cooper Union.
