Gertrude Talks - James Nguyen and Joseph Griffiths

Gertrude Talks was a weekly discussion series produced by Bus Projects in partnership with Gertrude Contemporary hosted by studio artist Georgia Banks.

James Nguyen sits on the edge of his desk in his studio. He wears a black t-shirt and blue jeans and brown shoes, hands clasped in front of him. The desk has a pile of books, and various art materials. Behind him is a tall plant in the corner, 3 dark, blue, black paintings on the wall, a couch behind and to the left. Next to the couch is a bike resting against the wooden studio wall, and a manequinn is in front of the bike, with light blue textured material, which is also at James' feet.
