HANOI

PERFORMANCE

Stand-Up Comedy Show with Gina Yashere

8pm on January 18

Standing Bar

170 Tran Vu, Ba Dinh District, Hanoi

A stand-up comedy show with Gina Yashere, a multiple award-winning UK comedian.

Gina’s early adult life included a stint as an Otis lift mechanic before she turned her attention to stand-up comedy. What has happened since to the British-Nigerian comedian has been nothing short of phenomenal.

Concert and Ballet “The Voices of Spring”

Hanoi Opera House

1 Trang Tien Street, Hoan Kiem District,

You are invited to A Night of Concert and Ballet “The Voices of Spring” with performances by artistic director People’s Artist Pham Anh Phuong, conductor Le Phi Phi, singers, an orchestra, a choir and dancers from the Vietnam National Opera and Ballet.

EXHIBITION

Exhibition “Misunderstandings” by Lukas Zerbst

Work Room Four

24th Floor, Packexim Building, Lane 15, An Duong Vuong Street, Tay Ho District,

The exhibition features video works and site-specific installation pieces by German multimedia artist Lukas Zerbst.

The process of making art and putting on an exhibition is often at its most engaging when it is a little bit confusing, allows more than one perspective and brings joy and frustration in equal measure.

Our collaboration with Zerbst has been all those things already and we look forward to showing you the result.

Group Exhibition “Spring 2017”

Hanoi Studio Gallery

13 Trang Tien Street, Hoan Kiem District, Hanoi

The Year of the Rooster—a symbol of kindness, hard work, humility and fulfilment—and its beauty will be reflected in paintings by thirteen artists at the exhibition.

EXHIBITION

Exhibition “The Prolonged Interventions” by Le Phi Long

The Factory Contemporary Arts Centre

15 Nguyen U Di, Thao Dien, District 2,

This exhibition features photographs and an installation by Le Phi Long accompanied by a video documentary directed by Le Phi Long, commissioned and produced by Madeleine Cao—founder of the social enterprise OpenM Corp.

Exhibition “The Three-Cornered World”

Galerie Quynh

Level 2, 151/3 Dong Khoi, Dist 1, Ho Chi Minh City

“The Three-Cornered World,” a novella by influential Japanese writer Natsume Soseki, tells the story of an unnamed artist sojourning in a nearly deserted hot-spring resort. Carrying nothing but paper and paint, the artist seeks refuge in art and haiku amidst the remoteness of the mountainous region, driven away from the society of man by the turbulence of war.

With these thoughts in mind, for our annual year-end hanging, the organiser presents a selection of hopeful, contemplative artworks by Ha Manh Thang, Sandrine Llouquet, Christine Nguyen, Nguyen Huy An and Tran Van Thao. May 2017 be a year of more critical inquiry and passionate debate about our common humanity.
