Tammy's art practice focuses on the multi-layered and fragmented 'hyphenated' space between cultures, influenced by her families' intergenerational connection between China and Australia.
Her recent research projects under the framework of 'curating inclusive cities' have often involved a socially engaged practice working with various urban communities, in particular addressing issues of migration, belonging and the role of art in encouraging an inclusive city.
Tammy also worked with the contemporary Chinese art community, Beijing, China in the early 2000s. This experience had a profound impact on her own outlook towards contemporary art practices encouraging an interest in art practices that are more open ended and expressive of social concerns. She was also a curator and arts manager in Sydney for Newcontemporaries Gallery and The City of Sydney. In 2012 she completed her PhD researching 'The City as a Curated Space' at RMIT University, investigating how the urban condition has an impact on the way artists and urban communities are able to engage with these environments, offering an alternative model of exhibition to the traditional museology.
Tammy has taught in fine arts, art history, arts and cultural management and curatorial subjects in Melbourne and Hong Kong at RMIT University and the University of Melbourne.
