HCM CITY (VNS) — Galerie Quynh will present "1972-2015: Works by Hoang Duong Cam and Trong Gia Nguyen" starting from today.
The two-artist exhibition contends with issues of movement, displacement, refuge and migration, according to a gallery press release.
While Cam's paintings reference Viet Nam in the period around 1972, Nguyen's sculptures superimpose an uneasy American Dream over the Saigon landscape as his recent relocation to HCM City from New York City re-shapes personal notions of home and domestic space, the press release said.
Cam (born in 1974, Ha Noi) is one of Viet Nam's most daring conceptual artists. He completed his studies at the Ha Noi University of Fine Arts in 1996 and has participated in numerous exhibitions and biennales in Asia, North America and Europe.
Nguyen (born in 1971, HCM City) is a multi-disciplinary artist known internationally for his diverse body of works that often examines structures of power in their myriad forms.
The one-month exhibition takes place at Galerie Quynh, Level 2, 151/3 Dong Khoi Street, District 1, from 10am to 7pm from Tuesday to Saturday. — VNS
