Lê Thuận Uyên is an independent researcher and curator. She spent 7 years in the UK, where she obtained her BA in Politics from the University of York and her MA in Cultural and Creative Industries from King’s College London, while simultaneously working in art fundraising at the British Museum and Barbican Art Centre.

She has worked for a broad range of curatorial projects including Miền Méo Miệng (Umea, Sweden, 2015), Skylines with flying people 3 (Hanoi, 2016), Condition Report (Jarkarta, 2017), and the Gang of Five retrospective exhibition (Hanoi, 2017).
