Eleven Nguyens and the Thirty Year Loss - June 23

This is an event definitely worth checking out, I will for sure stop by sometime to see Trong's latest curatorial efforts. Always bringing together a diverse collection of new, emerging and sometimes established artists, Trong has selected artists for this show who arbitrarily share the same most common Vietnamese surname Nguyen. They were asked to produce work specifically on April 30th that encouraged personal reflections of that significant day. Surprisingly the 30 year anniversary of the end of the war went rather unremarked upon. Maybe we are ready to move on?

Eleven Nguyens and the Thirty Year Loss curated by Trong G. Nguyen
Opening Reception: June 23, Thursday 6–8pm/ Show runs: June 23 – July 30, 2005
547 West 27th Street, 2nd Floor

The exhibiting artists: Cat Tuong Nguyen, Christian Nguyen, Christine Nguyen, Dustin Nguyen, Han Nguyen, Hoang Tan Nguyen, Liza Nguyen, Long Nguyen, Pipo Nguyen-duy, Rodney Nguyen, and Stephen Nguyen

We will be at this show. We are driving from Illinois..We would not miss this event since we are friends/fans of Stephen Nguyen. We are looking forward to the Opening and the city. Can't wait to see what Stephen and the other Nguyen artists have produced.
See you in NYC!
