VN-US contemporary art to show in California (June 08, 2005)

VietNamNet – As part of a series of cultural events celebrating 10 years of normalised VN- US relations this year, contemporary art by Vietnamese-American and Vietnamese artists will be exhibited in California.

The U.S. Embassy in Hanoi is in full support of cultural exchanges such as this, as they provide opportunities for personal contact and sharing of ideas to increase mutual understanding between the two countries.

The Huntington Beach Art Centre (HBAC) in California, USA, presents Out of Context, a look at contemporary art by Vietnamese-American artists living in California and Vietnamese artists living in Vietnam.

The HBAC is a community arts and cultural centre serving Huntington Beach and the Southern California region. The exhibition investigates the wide range of stylistic choices, media and content found through extensive visits to communities in Los Angeles, Orange County, San Diego, the San Francisco Bay area, Hanoi and Saigon.

Through exhibitions, performances, film/video screenings, lectures and educational programming, the HBAC serves to advance public awareness and understanding of cultural, historic, and contemporary perspectives.

On display will be selected works by two generations of working artists whose individual concerns often precede any cultural identification. First and foremost the work is contemporary, be it sentimental, political, aesthetical or conceptual.

The range of works in the exhibition will include photography and photo-based work, paintings on canvas and paper, sculpture and installation, and sound installation and video.

The thirteen artists involved have provided new works, which not previously been exhibited. The artists are Hoang Duong Cam, Fatima Hoang, Trang Le, Christine Nguyen, Nguyen Van Cuong, Han Nguyen, Nguyen Manh Hung, Nguyen Quang Huy, Nguyen Minh Phuoc, Tran Van Thao, Lien Truong, Hoang Vu and Vu Dan Tan.

The US Embassy has provided Mr. Nguyen Van Cuong with a small grant in support of his participation in the Out of Context exhibit.
