A talk by artist Jacqueline Hoang Nguyen, co-organized by San Art and dia/projects, will take place at Galerie Quynh in Ho Chi Minh City at 7 p.m. on Dec 13.

Current artist-in-residence at dia/projects, Jacqueline Hoang Nguyen, will speak about the influence of feminist theories in her artistic practice and her interest in archives, according to a press release from San Art this week.

Nguyen will "unpack ongoing and past works in an attempt to raise questions on the ordering of knowledge and exploring unexpected ways of re-articulating the past, exposing the ideological constructions of such processes, while translating present concerns," the release says.

In her work, Nguyen uses a broad range of mediums including sound, video, printmaking and photography.

Born and raised in Montreal (Canada), Nguyen, who is French-Canadian of Vietnamese origin, recently completed the Whitney Museum of American Art's Independent Study Program (2010- 2011).

Galerie Quynh is located on 65 De Tham Street, District 1. Entrance to the event is free.
