Nguyễn Đức Huy (b.1995, Hanoi) is a visual artist whose mediums include painting, digital art, and animation. Huy’s aesthetic is colorful, humorous, and imbued with confusion and detachment. His works have been featured in various group exhibitions and screenings include: Kontrapunkte – Voices On SCREEN (Staatlich Kunstsamlungen Dresden, Germany, 2022), This is not a love song (Like the Moon in A Night Sky 3, Hanoi, 2022), Running on a golden road (Á Space, Hanoi, 2021), Virtual Private Realms (Manzi Art Space, Hanoi, 2021), Second Opinion (Manzi Art Space, Hanoi, 2019), Hobbling Pedestrian (Nhà Sàn Studio, 2016).
Linh Lê is a curator, writer and researcher currently based in Sài Gòn. Her work taps into the performativity of archives, space, and the body in artistic practice. In 2020, she was selected for a curator exchange between Vietnam and Sydney – a programme by 4A Center with support from the Australian Council. Some of her previous projects include Măng Ta journal and the CáRô arts education programme. She holds a BA (Honours) in Arts Management from Essex University and the Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts (Singapore).

On the occasion of Nguyễn Đức Huy’s first solo exhibition titled ‘Soon Time Will Come’, on behalf of artist Nguyễn Đức Huy and curator Linh Lê, Á would like to invite those who have followed and are interested in Huy’s artistic practice, to come to this group critique session to give Huy and Linh constructive criticisms to his debut exhibition.  

Eight years ago, when both dropping out of school, Huy and Flinh talked to each other, not knowing when it would be their turn to realize their solo exhibitions. Looking directly into Flinh’s eyes, Huy said: ‘Soon time will come!’. The saying coincides with the spirit of Huy’s new series of works, now becoming the title of Huy’s first solo exhibition. The exhibition ‘Soon Time Will Come’ will take place from May 5 to May 21, 2023, with the companionship of curator Linh Le at A Space, a space that has also been accompanying the artist’s art practice since 2018.

Over the past 7 years, Huy has experimented with many media ranging from drawing, photography, video, installation, adopted many ways of working with his creations, has participated in many group exhibitions and film screenings. Moreover, Huy even tried his hands at different roles such as acting or illustrating, to get to know himself more deeply.

Love for the whip, hate it for the sweet, Á would like to invite you to take your time from 17.30 to 19.30 on May 6, 2023 to attend this group critique.
