Nguyễn Tuấn Dũng, Màu Mưa, Colors in the Rain, 2021, Acrylic trên vải canvas, Acrylic on canvas, 80 x 120 cm
After a rather quiet 2021 devoid of exhibitions, CTG is now preparing a brimming and diverse program of exhibitions for 2022 that will feature many of Vietnam’s most talented and exciting young artists as well as a number of the country’s most accomplished and compelling mid-career painters.
Phạm Đình Tiến, Kính Kiểu Hàng Hiệu, High-end Brand Eyewear, 2021, Chất liệu tổng hợp, Mixed media, 30 x 25 x 20 cm
This Summer’s first solo exhibition by sculptor Pham Dinh Tien has been ten years in the making since his appearance on the scene fresh out of art school in 2012. Tien has created many strong works in the intervening years, but this will be his first gallery curated solo exhibition.
Phạm Thanh Toàn, Bối Cảnh Xã Hội Việt Nam, Vietnam’s Backdrop, 2021, Sơn dầu trên vải canvas, Oil on canvas, 250 x 750 cm
Pham Thanh Toan is in his studio preparing his next collection for a solo exhibition that will open at CTG on 1 April 2022. Toan is force of nature under normal conditions, so we are expecting a unique explosion of creativity from this uniquely gifted and creatively ambitious young painter given so much time to reflect and plan.
Lim Khim Ka Ty, Trí Tưởng Tượng, Imaginary Mind, 2021, Sơn dầu trên vải canvas, Oil on canvas, 200 x 200 cm
First having worked with Lim Khim Ka Ty in 2005 at Hanoi Studio, CTG had the privilege of hosting her second solo exhibition of figurative works at the gallery in 2012. Now a decade later, we are thrilled to be the destination for Ka Ty’s third solo exhibition of figurative works on 29 April of this year.
In honor of our many years of working together, CTG will be producing a companion catalog for Ka Ty’s exhibition that will be a retrospective of her work over the first sixteen years of her career.
Để tôn vinh nhiều năm cộng tác cùng nhau, CTG sẽ in catalog cho triển lãm này của Ka Ty, đồng thời nhìn lại hành trình mười sáu năm sự nghiệp họa sĩ của cô.
Nguyễn Tuấn Dũng, Báu Vật Của Mẹ, Mother’s Treasure, 2021, Acrylic trên vải bố, Acrylic on canvas, 40 x 40 cm
CTG hosted Nguyen Tuan Dung’s first solo collection “My Story” at the gallery in 2016. Dung’s nostalgic and visually evocative style of painting is both technically skilled and emotionally resonant. Dung’s second solo exhibition will be held at CTG in the summer of 2022.
Liêu Nguyễn, Mùa Xuân 2, Spring 2, 2021, Acrylic trên vải canvas, Acrylic on canvas, 110 x 150 cm

Nguyễn Hùng Sơn, Sân Khấu, The Stage, 2021, Sơn dầu trên vải canvas, Oil on canvas, 120 x 160 cm
Nguyen Hung Son had his first solo show with CTG in late 2017. Son’s work is reminiscent of the Chinese “Cynical Realism” artistic movement and flirts with a level of humorous social criticism that is unique in Vietnam. Over the intervening several years since his solo show, Son has crafted a number of new works in his particularly clever and engaging style.
Phạm Huy Thông, Công Trường 01 / Construction 01 , Bộ tranh Ấp Ủ, Conceiving series, 2021, Sơn dầu trên vải đay, Oil on jute, 130 x 100 cm
Pham Huy Thongwill be having his fifth solo exhibition with CTG in the second half of 2022. Over his fifteen-year career to date, Thong has consistently shown himself to be among Vietnam’s most intellectually engaged and technically skilled painters.
Trương Thế Linh, Lãng Khách, Vagabond, 2018, Acrylic trên vải bố, Acrylic on canvas, 120 x 120 cm
Truong The Linh is one of our favorite young painters and we were glad to host his astonishing first solo exhibition of lavishly rendered paintings entitled “Instability” in 2018. Plans are in motion for Linh to show a new collection of his paintings at CTG in the second half of 2022.
