The first truly comprehensive insider's guide for foreign residents The website is under beta testing.
Join curator Arlette Quynh-Anh Tran in an insightful exploration of Truong Cong Tung's solo exhibition Between Fragmentation & Wholeness.
Inspired by myths, folklore and unfounded stories found in daily news, Tung connects the fragments from his subconscious and his surroundings to establish a complex picture, which weaves chaotic urban scenes with the mythical land of Tay Nguyen - a picture that goes beyond the banality of reality and the mimesis of nature.
During the art tour, Arlette Quynh-Anh Tran will also discuss Truong Cong Tung's research process and the stories behind the various bodies of work, as well as the artist's decade-long artistic practice.

► ABOUT THE CURATOR
Based in Saigon, Arlette Quynh-Anh Tran is a curator, writer and member of the collective Art Labor. She is currently Curator and Director of Post Vidai – the world’s largest collection of contemporary Vietnamese art located in Geneva and Saigon. Tran was previously Assistant Curator at Sàn Art and Assistant Curator at Saigon Open City (curated by Rirkrit Tiravanija and Gridthiya Gaweewong). Her curatorial practices aim to go beyond the mere aesthetic value of art and consider art as catalyst, which uses visual language to interpret, question, and narrate multiple spheres of a topic. She focuses on collaborative labor between visual art and other disciplines, from natural and social sciences to business, design and fashion. Tran has contributed research, texts and thoughts to various local and international publications, exhibitions and projects such as Istanbul Biennale 2015; Hugo Boss Asia Award 2015, Shanghai; 2084 (2012) with Pelin Tan and Anton Vidokle; Digitizing the Archival Materials of Blue Space Contemporary Arts Centre for Asia Art Archive, Hong Kong; World Biennale Forum No. 1, Gwangju, Korea; SYNAPSE – International Curators’ Network, HKW, Berlin; and several solo and group shows for young emerging artists in the region.
