Artist Talk & Reception with Martin Lam Nguyen, C.S.C. – Nov. 3 at UD’s Haggerty Gallery

You are warmly invited …

Please join us for the closing reception of Moments, a solo exhibition of works by Rev. Martin Lam Nguyen, C.S.C, this Friday, Nov. 3, 2017, from 5-8 p.m. An artist talk is being given in the Art History Auditorium at 5 p.m.at the University of Dallas with the reception following directly in the gallery. An artist catalog is being published for the occasion of the exhibition and will be available on the night. The exhibition ends this Sunday, Nov. 5, at 5 p.m., do not miss out!

A Roman Catholic priest from Vietnam, Nguyen will be transforming the gallery into a large installation for quiet meditation and reflection on the present moment.

The exhibition brings together three multi-year projects: Mountain Waits (1998-1999), Lucie (2001-2005), and Painting of the Social Network (2007-present). Occupying every inch of the gallery, this vast installation features thousands of cataloged moments, each carefully painted or drawn and then presented in a grid-like format. The result is a work of abounding repetition yet permeated with individuality, as each picture, like the moments they depict, reads as unique and personal.

“It is a room for meditation and it really resembles life,” says Nguyen, “the connections, the disconnections, the facts, the fragility of all of it and yet the power of life.” 

Devoted priest, long-serving educator and accomplished artist, Nguyen brings the many parts of his life together in the studio. Meditation and prayer join the rhythmic stroke of intricate line work. Like ink and water on paper, juxtaposing lessons from a life marred by war mix together with joyful religious service.

“Many of the things are sad, but the bottom line of this life is good,” said Nguyen. “Life is very precious. It’s a positive message.” 

Nguyen is an Associate Professor at the University of Notre Dame in the Department of Art, Art History and Design; he has been teaching there since 1995. In 1989, he became a priest of the Congregation of the Holy Cross after fleeing Vietnam as a refugee a decade earlier.

Moments, Martin Lam Nguyen Solo opening Oct. 5 at UD’s Haggerty Gallery

The Beatrice M. Haggerty Gallery is honored to present Moments, a solo show by Martin Lam Nguyen. Please join us for either the opening reception on October 5, 6-8 p.m. or our closing reception November 3, 6-8 p.m. The exhibition runs through from October 5, to November 5, 2017.

A devoted priest, long serving educator, and accomplished artist, Nguyen brings the many parts of his life together in the studio. Meditation and prayer join the rhythmic stroke of intricate line work in drawings and lessons from a life marred by war mixed together with joyful religious service, like ink and water on paper, with the desire to teach and inspire.

Martin Lam Nguyen was born in Vietnam; he arrived in America as a refugee in 1979 and became a priest of the Congregation of the Holy Cross a decade later. He joined the art department of the University of Notre Dame in 1995 and continues there as Associate Professor of the Department of Art, Art History and Design.

Moments brings together three of Nguyen’s major multi-year projects; Mountain Waits, Lucie, and Painting the Social Network for the first time. Encompassing every inch of the gallery, in an impressive installation, thousands of cataloged moments are laid out in a grid format in each project. The result is abounding repetition and yet individuality, as each painted or drawn image, like the moments they depict, reads as unique and personal.

However, Nguyen’s work is less about him and more about us, the viewer, as he creates a space for us to contemplate the moments of our own lives while viewing his work in the present moment.

The Galvez Streetscape, New Orleans, LA

Budget: $15,000

The Arts Council New Orleans, through the City of New Orleans Percent for Art Program, seeks to integrate impactful art into the city’s public space by illuminating the culturally artistic traditions inherent to our community.

New Orleans Fire Department Murals, LA

Budget: $15,000
Deadline: 11/4/16

The Arts Council New Orleans’ Place + Civic Design Department is requesting mural proposals to replace public art installations at two New Orleans Fire Department locations. The department, through the City of New Orleans’ Percent for Art Program, and in partnership with the New Orleans Fire Department, will decommission existing public art banner installations and replace them with contemporary murals at the 801 Girod Street Flying Squad and Basin Street stations. The call is open to experienced artists, artist teams, or community groups working with muralists. Proposals may be submitted for both sites; however, only one artist or artist group will be selected for each site. While the installation should connect the fire department to the larger New Orleans community, themes should reflect broader sentiments that transcend specific references to fire, safety, and the departments’ history. Example sentiments include, but are not limited to: • A deep connection to, and congruence with, the surrounding neighborhood; • Specific historical references from the surrounding community; • Celebration of contemporary art’s transformative energy; • Collective empowerment and representation through creative expression in urban spaces; • Excitement and interest for the community’s current growth and energy; • Celebration of the neighborhood’s identity, and rich heritage.
