Visual artist and ACC alumnus Trần Minh Đức is participating in the group exhibition ‘Singing to the Choir?’ at The Factory Contemporary Arts Centre. Born in 1982 in Ho Chi Minh City, Đức is interested in the interactions between the collective and individual, the local and the foreign. His practice interrogates what it means to be Vietnamese in the complex fabric of today’s conflicted world. He graduated from the painting department of the College of Culture and Arts of Ho Chi Minh City, his work spanning performance, photography, collage, print-making and installation, exploring social memory and cultural archives through an investigation of historical narrative, colonialism, imperialism and the lasting impact of war and migration.

Discover ‘the Vietnamese’ in Đức’s works which will be displayed at the exhibition ‘Singing to the Choir?’ together with works by artists Phan Anh and Ngọc Nâu. The exhibition opens at 6pm, 8 November 2019 at The Factory Contemporary Arts Centre.
