About Amanda Reid

Amanda Reid is an itinerant multimedia artist working primarily with video, photography and printmaking. In her past work, she has incorporated these mediums in the form of installations. Her work deals with her interpersonal relationships to her heritage, mixed race identity and the connections between tradition and modernity.

She graduated from the University of Pennsylvania in 2018 with a Bachelor’s degree studying English, Fine Arts, and Cinema. Raised in Saigon, she lived in Philadelphia for five years before coming back to Vietnam. She is inspired by ideas of time travel, ghosts, and mundanity, and wishes she understand people better.
