Dan Duy Nguyen and Mailan Thi Pham

Sweeney Art Gallery

January 26 - June 14, 2008

Opening Reception

Saturday, January 26, 2008, 7pm - 9pm

Dan Duy Nguyen and Mailan Thi Pham both utilize an aesthetic approach they refer to as "Phantasma Transcendentalism", a visual and philosophical movement that uses art to raise questions, stir thoughts and enlighten both the viewer as well as the artist. Growing up as Vietnamese Americans, Nguyen and Pham navigate a complex, modern world wrought with all its sociological, worldly and spiritual issues. For the Sweeney, Nguyen will create a site-specific 24 mural, and Pham will create a sculptural installation. Both works will be in dialogue while presented in Sweeney's new Window Gallery series. This exhibition has been guest curated by Lee Tusman of the Riverside Art Museum. Support has been provided by Beautiful Decay magazine.
