Passenger Pigeon Press was founded in fall 2016 by artist and trained taxidermist Tammy Nguyen with the goal of bringing together scientists, historians, activists, journalists, writers and creative artists to develop projects that integrated lesser-known geo-politics, non-fiction and experimental design. Issues covered to date include endangered species, labor rights, sports rules and gastronomy. Appearing under its umbrella are Martha's Quarterly which presents contemporary politics in experimental, artist-book fashion; Public Domain which scours global archives in order to reproduce governmental documents germane to present debates; The Color Curtain Project which explores, partly in the form of a state dinner, the legacies of the 1955 Bandung Conference.
TAMMY NGUYEN works in painting, drawing, printmaking, and artist books. She has a BFA from Cooper Union, MFA from Yale School of Art, and was a Fulbright Scholar in Vietnam. She has been an artist-in-residence at the Center for Book Arts, an Asia Delegate for the Carnegie Council, and exhibited at institutions such as the Rubin Museum, Bronx Museum, and Wave Hall.
