From Sàn Art:
Please join us for a talk by artist Jacqueline Hoang Nguyen, hosted by Galerie Quynh, co-organized by San Art and dia/projects. Current artist-in-residence at dia/projects, Jacqueline Hoang Nguyen, will speak about the influence of feminist theories in her artistic practice and her interest for archives.
Nguyen will unpack ongoing and past works in an attempt to raise questions on the ordering of knowledge and exploring unexpected ways of re-articulating the past, exposing the ideological constructions of such processes, while translating present concerns. In her work, she uses a broad range of mediums including sound, video, printmaking and photography.
Born and raised in Montreal (Canada), French-Canadian of Vietnamese origin Nguyen recently completed the Whitney Museum of American Art’s Independent Study Program (2010- 2011). She obtained her MFA and a post-graduate diploma in Critical Studies at the Malmö Art Academy in Malmö, Sweden (2003- 2005), and had previously completed her BFA degree with distinction at Concordia University in Montreal (1999-2003). Nguyen was awarded a number of distinguished grants including the Bric Media Fellowship from the BRIC Arts|Media|Bklyn (2011), travel grants from the Canada Council for the Arts (2010 & 2011) in addition to the prestigious Swedish Research and Development Fellowship in the Arts (2007) by the Royal College of Fine Arts in Stockholm. Amongst selected exhibitions, Nguyen’s work was shown at Gasworks (London, 2010); Pictura Gallery/Skånska Konstmuseum (Lund, 2009); Cranbrook Museum (Cranbrook, 2008); Rooseum Museum of Contemporary Art (Malmö, 2005); and the Living Art Museum (Reykjavik, 2004). She also participated in a number of sought-after residencies, such as the Banff Centre in Canada (2010 and forthcoming 2012), L’appartement 22 in Morocco (2010), USF Verftet in Norway (2009) amidst others.
