Another year, another exciting edition of Materialize! The Factory would like to say ‘Thank you’ to everyone who has enthusiastically applied, and to send our ‘Congratulations’ to the two successful candidates Thy Nguyễn and Tuyền Nguyễn.
This coming May, Thy Nguyễn (HCMC) will present his newest experimentations with printmaking – one of Fine Art’s most traditional artistic languages. Through his critical questioning of ‘the original’ and ‘the copy’, Thy challenges our conventional views about the ‘print’. In November, Tuyền Nguyễn (HCMC) combines the imaginative realm of painting with the science of solid geometry, hoping to call for a reassessment of the stereotypical values of aesthetic expectations often imposed on systems of arts education, as well as those who (must) endure them.
