Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam – In celebration of its 10th anniversary, Galerie Quynh has organized 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.
