An autobiographical performance by LGBTQ+ artist Nguyen Trieu Duong

A mobile phone and himself…discovering the gay world…

B.A.R.E is an autobiographical performance by Nguyen Trieu Duong about the loneliness and isolation of LGBTQ+ person in his own community.

After six years living in the UK, he has new experiences about life in the LGBTQ community, where identity is judged based on factors such as race, muscularity and luxury in their personal environment. This is what motivates the artist to create his first autobiographical performance B.A.R.E.

Hanoi-Talk – Hanoi’s Charm

Sep 20, 2 pm –4 pm,
AGOhub, 12 Hoa Ma Street

From the organizer:

Art researcher Trần Hậu Yên Thế created the book “The old ironworks” which won the 7th Bui Xuan Phai – for the love of Hanoi award. Join us for this presentation as Thế talks about his research over the past 15 years into buildings from times past that brought an everlasting charm to Hanoi’s streets.

His work covers the ancient ironworks of balconies, windows and doors and the decorative facades and reliefs of Hanoi’s grand former French buildings and old villas. The craftsmen were Vietnamese workers who had to very quickly learn western iron working techniques. The result – a panorama of building facades displaying French aesthetics and elegance.

He looks at the ornamental motifs on Hanoi’s beautiful wrought iron work and building facades crafted in the early 20th century. Rather than focusing on the minutia of every architectural detail, Thế’s presentation is from the point of view of the anthropology and humanity of the structures. He looks at their lives of the buildings, what their styles tell us about the changing society and history at the time, who the owners were and what the current lives of the buildings are now. He will also share in some detail about his Phuc Tan wall of fame contribution (he is on the of the 16 artists).

Thế will speak in Vietnamese, artist Nguyễn Thế Sơn will translate into English
