Studio Sessions: Joanna Tam


Welcome to the Studio Sessions interview with our guest Joanna Tam.

Joanna earned a BS in Computer Science and Economics in 1994, an MS in Information Science in 1996, and an MFA from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston in 2012. Her interdisciplinary works tend to focus on topics dealing with personal and cultural identity. Often her projects examine small things that make cultures different and unique. But in other projects she works with ideas that seek to eliminate these differences, such as a documentary piece of her attempts to reduce her accent using a language coach.

Listen as Joanna discusses the ideas at play in her pieces, and the insights she’s gained from her work.
