Is It Morning For You Yet?58th Carnegie International

Anh Trần

Anh Trần (b. 1989, Bến Tre; lives in Tāmaki Makaurau/Auckland) works across painting methods and materials to address the complexity of the fluctuating distance between contemporary painting critical discourses and non-Western or hybrid painting practices, and the challenges for non-Western painters to engage with these discourses. Her practice draws on a painterly language that responds to spontaneous energy and sensations. Trần received a master of fine arts degree with first-class honors from Elam School of Fine Arts, University of Auckland, and a bachelor’s degree in visual arts from Unitec Institute of Technology, Auckland. She has been included in exhibitions at Galerie Fons Welters, Amsterdam; Artspace Aotearoa, Auckland; Window gallery, Auckland; Demo gallery, Auckland; and RM gallery, Auckland. She was an artist-in-residence at the Rijksakademie, Amsterdam, and the recipient of the 2016 Henrietta and Lola Anne Tunbridge Scholarship.
