Saturday, December 9, 2023 | 2-4pm
Location: Slash (1150 25th St, Building B, San Francisco)
This is a free in-person event
On the occasion of trầnsfiguration, currently on view in our main gallery, we invite you to stop by the Slash galleries for an informal meet and greet with visiting artists Corey Pickett, Nhung Đinh, Nhật Minh (neé Frédéric Dialynas Sanchez), and the exhibition’s curator Việt Lê. There will be snacks and refreshments as well as card readings, and the artists and curator will be available to answer questions about the exhibition. We’ll have real talk about mental health (“psychos?”/ psychosis), magic (psychics! physics), and modernities (Clovis, Paris, Hà Nội).
This is also an opportunity to catch the exhibition before it closes on December 16 and to see how it has transformed since opening in September, with added works by Đinh Thị Thắm Poong, Corey Pickett, and a temporary intervention by Nhật Minh (aka Frédéric Dialynas Sanchez).
Corey Pickett is an interdisciplinary artist living in New Mexico. His practice examines the relationships of fear, race, and social systems, which are informed by his upbringing in the Golden Isles of Georgia. In addition to being a working artist, Pickett is the founder and Director of The Jaye Rock Cultural Center in Clovis, NM. He received his Master of Education in 2008 and his MFA in 2017 from Vermont College of Fine Arts. He has exhibited his work in cities throughout the US and is a recipient of the International Sculpture Center’s 2017 Outstanding Student Achievement in Contemporary Sculpture Award.
Nhung Đinh is an independent artist, curator, and filmmaker working with queer communities in several countries. Most of her projects are collective works that are rooted in her approach to participatory and relational aesthetics in which her roles as facilitator, artist, curator, and organizer are overlapping. She is the founder of Bàn Lộn-Vagina Talks– a public art and education project in Hà Nội, Việt Nam, that consists of performances, workshops, and exhibitions.
Nhật Minh (neé Frédéric Dialynas Sanchez) is a French artist born in 1983. His first solo show took place in Hanoi (2006), where he often travels to develop his research. His work has been shown internationally, including at CNAC of Grenoble and the Museum of Contemporary Art in Tucson. Curation is also a part of Minh’s art process and he created the nomad gallery “L’Éclair” to propose collective projects (www.l-eclair.fr). His recent solo exhibit was held at VinFast in Paris.
