In celebration of its 10th anniversary, Galerie Quynh will present an ambitious exhibition spanning both its De Tham and Dong Khoi galleries. Titled Onward and Upward, the show features work by 17 artists who continue to define and shape the contemporary art landscape in Vietnam. Whether realized through painterly abstraction, whimsical drawing, trompe l’oeil sculpture, digitally woven photography or kitsch motorbike decal collage, the works in this exhibition are equally as diverse thematically. Historical memory and loss, cultural difference, urban space, nature and human, identity, power and rebellion are among the varied themes in the show.
The participating artists are Thierry Bernard-Gotteland, Tiffany Chung, Nadege David, Thien Do, Ha Manh Thang, Hoang Duong Cam, Sandrine Llouquet, Nguyen Manh Hung, Nguyen Phuong Linh, Trong Gia Nguyen, Nguyen Thanh Truc, Tuan Andrew Nguyen, Phan Quang, The Propeller Group, Tran Van Thao, Truc-Anh and Lien Truong. Please contact the gallery for detailed information on the individual artists and exhibited works.
The opening reception will be held at both galleries on Friday, the 28th of March from 6 to 9pm. Both gallery spaces will be open to the public for the entire evening.
The 10th anniversary exhibition will also see the launch of three new publications featuring work by three of Vietnam’s most acclaimed artists: One Planet by Nguyen Manh Hung; Heaven is a Place by Ha Manh Thang; and an archaeology project for future remembrance by Tiffany Chung.
