Nguyen Phuong Linh wins Han Nefkens Foundation-BACC Award for Contemporary Art 2018

Post Vidai congratulates artist Nguyen Phuong Linh for a major milestone in her career with a new art prize from Hans Nefkens Foundation.

Chinese artist, Tao Chao, was the first inaugural in 2013 with Anup Mathew Thomas, Indian artist who won the second biennale in 2015. And in 2017, Linh Phuong Nguyen, the first woman conquering the third Han Nefkens Foundation-BACC Award for Contemporay Art, was selected from 7 finalists by 6 juries, that is; Han Nefkens, Luckana Kunavichayanont, Hilde Teerlinck, Eugene Tan, Dihn Q. Le and Erin Gleeson. The committees had unanimous resolution that Linh Phuong Nguyen is the winner as the jury statement below;

“Linh Phuong Nguyen has been chosen unanimously for her potential of exploring and expanding her practice. Her most recent works at the Singapore Biennale gave juries the glimpse of future direction of her work. Juries believe that following her current practice, together with the residency she will be having in Bangkok, she will develop fruitfully through the new environment.”

Anticipating her potential, Post Vidai started to acquire Phuong Linh’s works in her first themed exhibition ‘Salt’ since 2009. Read more of Nguyen Phuong Linh’s works in the collection here.
