CTG Nomad is Craig Thomas Gallery’s roving gallery project to bring Vietnamese contemporary artists to the great art cities of the world. We aspire to increase the awareness of Vietnamese art generally and create new paths for young artists to project their work beyond their home country. New York was the natural first choice for the inaugural edition of the series because of the gallery’s ties to the city and the past support of many New York-based collectors. The prominent role that New York plays in the imaginations and aspirations of most young Vietnamese artists was also a deciding factor. A second edition of CTG Nomad is being planned for Paris in the fall of 2019.
Craig Thomas Gallery (CTG) was founded in 2009 with the express mission to create a much needed curated gallery space in Ho Chi Minh City focused primarily on the development of young Vietnamese visual artists. Over the nine years since its inception, CTG has endeavored to identify and support young artists and help them become established in their artistic practices. Although the gallery began with a local focus, CTG’s roster is now evenly balanced with artists from Vietnam’s threemain art centers of Hanoi, Saigon and Hue. CTG hosts a regular program of exhibitions at our Saigon gallery which includes a minimum of two debutant artists having their first commercial gallery exhibitions each year.
