REVEALING THE ESSENCE OF ARTISTIC MENTORSHIP
A passionate discussion on art between Rolex Mentor Joan Jonas and Protégée Thảo Nguyên Phan to be held at The Factory Contemporary Arts Centre in Vietnam
Internationally acclaimed, pioneering American performance and video artist Joan Jonas will share the stage with visual artist Thảo Nguyên Phan, her protégée in the Rolex Mentor and Protégé Arts Initiative, at a lecture and discussion held from 4pm, on 12 February at Ho Chi Minh City’s Factory Contemporary Arts Centre.
As part of the lecture, “Mentorship: Revealing an Artistic Practice”, Jonas will relate her experiences in a career that spans over nearly a half century and reveal her views on society in light of contemporary art. Following the lecture, Thảo Nguyên Phan, herself a multimedia artist from Ho Chi Minh City who uses painting, installation, video and performance to depict historical and contemporary concepts, will discuss her artistic interaction with the legendary Jonas over the past 10 months.
In particular, the event will highlight the creative dialogue between these two artists of different generations and cultures.
The Factory Contemporary Arts Centre is an independent art centre that creates and hosts interdisciplinary contemporary art and cultural activities in order to introduce and expand knowledge of art and cultural trends, both past and present, in Vietnam.
Thảo Nguyên Phan will hold her first solo show at the centre in early April.
This lecture is presented in English with Vietnamese translation and free of charge. Due to the limited availability of seats, early registration is strongly recommended to ensure your participation. You can register here.
