Duy Hoàng is the 2021 Stuart Artist-in-Residence at South Dakota State University. His residency starts Tuesday and runs until Oct. 1.
Hoàng is an interdisciplinary artist born in Vietnam who earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts in 2013 at the University of Massachusetts Lowell and a Master of Fine Arts in 2017 at Colombia University. Since then, Hoàng has been residing in New York while participating in numerous exhibitions and residencies domestically and internationally.
“One of our goals is to bring artists to campus whose art and ideas are much different from current faculty and past artists, and we felt our community would benefit from Duy’s cultural perspectives and experiences,” said Diana Behl, coordinator of the studio art program.
Hoàng will have a public lecture, “Eat a Plum, Give a Peach,” at 6 p.m. Sept. 14 in Founders Recital Hall of the Oscar Larson Performing Arts Center on campus.
Additionally, he will have an open studio event from 4 to 6 p.m. Sept. 30 in the Ritz Gallery in Grove Hall.
The Stuart Artist-in-Residence program is funded through a donation from Joe and Signe Stuart, who worked and taught in Brookings for several decades. Signe Stuart was a professor of art at State from 1972-1994 and Joe Stuart served as director and curator at the South Dakota Art Museum. Together, they initiated the development of an artist-in-residence program on campus to enrich the SDSU community. Additional support is provided by the Griffith Foundation and SDSU’s School of Design.
