Vietnam Voices brings together three Vietnamese artists with three very different styles from three different locations. Giang Nguyen is now based in America. Her powerful and striking abstract works actually have a very relaxing and meditative effect on the viewer. Giang will be resident in Japan for one month in 2012 as part of a one month fellowship sponsored by the Japanese government.

Thanh Nguyen Truc based in Vietnam creates intricate collages which blend Asian and western cultures in an orderly composition. His works are in the collection of the Singapoe Art Museum Tran Trong Vu, who has been based in France for the past fifteen years has prepared more than 12 paintings for this show which provide a critical and somewhat humorous view of Vietnam. Vu was recently awarded the Jackson Pollock-Lee Krasner Fellowship for 2011.These artists go beyond stereotypes to engage visitors in a dialogue about a more diverse Vietnamese art scene than what is typically presented.

Opening Reception: October 9th 15:00 to 19:00

Art Talk: October 16th 18:00 to 19:00
