The Beatrice M. Haggerty Gallery is honored to present Moments, a solo show by Martin Lam Nguyen C.S.C. Please join us for the opening reception on October 5, 6-8 p.m.
The exhibition runs through from October 5 to November 5, 2017. Martin Lam Nguyen will give an artist talk November 3rd, 5 p.m. in our Art History Auditorium followed by a closing reception in the gallery.
Moments brings together three of Nguyen’s major multi-year projects; Mountain Waits (1998-1999), Lucie (2001-2005), and Painting the Social Network (2007-present) for the first time. Encompassing every inch of the gallery, in an impressively sized installation, thousands of cataloged moments are laid out in a grid format for each project. The result is abounding repetition and yet also individuality, as each painted or drawn image, like the moments they depict, reads as unique and personal.
Nguyen’s work is less about him and more about us, the viewer, as he creates a space to contemplate the moments of our own lives while viewing his work in the present moment.
Exhibition of work by Nick Bongtrager and Adam Fung, November 15 - January, 2017. Reception November 30th.
