We are pleased to welcome Jacqueline Hoang Nguyen back to CAMPLE LINE for this event. Jacqueline will be talking in conversation about Black Atlas and working with the archives of the Museum of Ethnography in Stockholm. She will also discuss her forthcoming anthology Crating the World (2019). Co-edited by Rado Ištok and published by Athénée Press (Mexico City), it will include contributions from Ariella Azoulay, Åsa Bharathi Larsson and Gabrielle Moser amongst others.
In 1888 Russian explorer Wilhelm Junker told members of the Swedish Society for Anthropology and Geography, ‘certainly more than 20,000 people carried [his] burdens’ as he traveled central Africa.’
Jacqueline Hoang Nguyen is an artist who uses archives and a broad range of media to investigate issues of historicity, collectivity, utopian politics and multiculturalism. Nguyen completed the Whitney Independent Study Program, New York, in 2011, having obtained her MFA and a post-graduate diploma in Critical Studies from the Malmö Art Academy, Sweden, in 2005, and a BFA from Concordia University, Montreal, in 2003. Born in Côte-des-Neiges in Montreal, Canada, she is currently based in Stockholm. Nguyen has an extensive exhibition history both in Canada and internationally.
