Chinternet Ugly at Manchester’s Centre for Chinese Contemporary Art Ocula Report Chinternet Ugly at Manchester’s Centre for Chinese Contemporary Art 7 Mar 2019 : Mike Pinnington for Ocula

Nguyen Phuong Linh

b. 1985, Vietnam

Born in 1985 in Hanoi where she is also based, Nguyen Phuong Linh is one of Vietnam’s most promising young artists.  She has exhibited in numerous exhibitions with recent solo shows at 3147966 cm3 mobile gallery in Thailand, Nha San Studio in Vietnam and Fukuoka Asian Art Museum in Japan.  Phuong Linh has also held many international artist residencies with organizations such as Seoul Art Space, Korea, Kaman Art Foundation, Rajasthan, India and The Luggage Store, San Francisco, California, USA.

As the daughter of the founder of Hanoi’s most prominent art space, Nha San, Linh has been immersed in an artistic environment since birth.  She has developed a heightened artistic sensibility and a curiosity that has led her to develop her own creativity without a formal education in the arts.

In addition to being a visual artist, Phuong Linh is a co-founder and organizer of IN:ACT, an international performance art festival held annually in Hanoi since 2010.  In 2011 she curated ‘Skylines Without Flying People’, an exhibition of eight contemporary Vietnamese artists, at Rory Gill Fine Art in London, UK.  In 2012, Phuong Linh curated and participated in ‘Skylines With Flying People’, an unprecedented multi-disciplinary exhibition and program of events held across numerous venues in Hanoi, including the Japan Foundation, the Goethe-Institut, and Manzi Art Space.
