The Young Artist Association (Hoi Hoa Si Tre) was perhaps the most dynamic and influential art association in the Republic of Vietnam. In its time, the YAA infused new stylistic elements, commented on war and society, and contributed to the rapid emergence of an internationalized art scene in the Republic. Trinh Cung, one of its founding members, will present this association’s history, legacies, as well as discussing his most recent work as part of a current group show by YAA members.
A founding member of the Young Artist Association, Trinh Cung won numerous national awards in the Republic of Vietnam for his work in the 1960s, including one at the first Saigon Biannual in 1962. His work was also shown at the 1963 Paris Biannual, and the 1964 Tunis Biannual. He has since lectured, published, and exhibited in Vietnam and internationally. He is currently lecturing on art and art history at Hoa Sen University in Hochiminh City, Vietnam.
