Trong Gia Nguyen participating in California-Pacific Triennial, Orange County Museum of Art, Newport Beach, CA: May 6 – September 3, 2017

Curated by Orange County Museum of Art Senior Curator Cassandra Coblentz, this thought-provoking exhibition explores the topic of architecture and the temporal precariousness of the built environment. Among the issues to be addressed are the recording of history and preservation; the concept of home and displacement; and the influence of global power, economics, and political systems on global construction.

The artists live and work in 11 countries bordering the Pacific Ocean and will present work that includes sculpture, installation, photography, and drawing, as well as performance-based and socially engaged activities. The majority of the works in the exhibition will be created specifically for this project or will be on public view for the first time; and many are site-specific installations.

Trong Gia Nguyen will present 5 new windows from the series Illuminations (2016 – present) and 7 paintings/photographs from The Leavers (2014 – 2017).
