Nguyแป…n Gia Trรญ: Exceptionalism, Collectivism and the Challenges of the Monograph
Nguyแป…n Gia Trรญ (1908-1993) has a special place in the history of modern Vietnamese art, credited with being the first artist to transform the local material of lacquer from a decorative to a fine art medium. In doing so, he forged a new form of artistic modernism, specific to the Vietnamese context. Viewed from this perspective, Nguyแป…n Gia Trรญ fits the model of art history required by the traditional monograph form: often a linear treatment of the artist as an โ€œexceptionalโ€ individual, whose body of work is analysed as a series of developments over a lifetime. At the same time, however, the creation of Vietnamese lacquer painting was also something produced collectively, associated with the colonial education system and a generation of artists who are typically treated as a stylistic and conceptual group. This talk will explore Nguyแป…n Gia Trรญโ€™s work from these two vantage points, showing tensions within the traditional model of the artist monograph. In addition, the talk will outline the methodological challenges to creating a monographic study of Nguyแป…n Gia Trรญ, related to the particular conditions in which the artist worked, such as the colonial-period market for Vietnamese art, the impact of war and ideological change.
