EXHIBITION

Exhibition “Pho Moi” (New Streets) by Pham Ha Duy Khanh

Exhibition hall

16 Ngo Quyen Street, Hoan Kiem District,

This is the artist’s first solo exhibition providing a rustic, genuine perspective of a country man on city streets. Through smooth, quick and generous brush strokes, Khanh’s paintings depict the joyful and chaotic modern life and convey the energy of youth.

Photo Exhibition “Rudel 2” by Sven Marquardt

Savage

112 Xuan Dieu Street, Tay Ho District,

Exhibition “Rudel 2” showcases photo portraits of musicians at Ostgut Booking – an artist residence for DJs in Berlin – taken by photographer Sven Marquardt from 2007 to 2017.

Sven Marquardt’s work combines formal severity and clear imagery with bleak impermanence. His photos impress us through the interaction of ease, severity and the dramatic art of monochrome contrasting.

Exhibition "Remote Viewing" by Sung Tieu

Nha San Collective

15th floor, Hanoi Creative City Building, 01 Luong Yen, Hai Ba Trung District,

REMOTE VIEWING is the first solo exhibition by the Vietnamese-born German artist Sung Tieu in Vietnam from 8 September – 23 September.

The exhibition investigates how Vietnam’s nationhood is shaped through tales, colonialism, war and the global market economy.

HO CHI MINH CITY

PERFORMANCE

Piano Duo Concert "Gemini"

8pm on September 11

Ho Chi Minh City Conservatory of Music

112 Nguyen Du, District 1,

A Piano Duo is considered to be the most challenging type of concert for pianists, for not only is it highly demanding in terms of technique but above all it requires a mutual understanding between the duo and harmony in every note.

Inspired by the name of a constellation in the Western zodiac, “Gemini” holds our ideas and hopes for the very first Piano Duo Concert in Vietnam.

Ticket: VND150,000 (VIP) – VND100,000 (Standard)

EXHIBITION

Exhibition “Muted Conversations” by Dat Vu

The Factory Contemporary Arts Centre

Solo Exhibition “Persona” by Tuyp Tran

Dia Projects

Ground Floor, Saigon Domaine, 1057 Bình Quoi Ward 28, Binh Thanh District,

In “Persona”, Tuyp zooms out a little and raises many questions which are made visible through an exploration of religious, political and scientific narratives. Where do we get our personalities from? How do we navigate the gulf between what we think we are and how we are perceived? To what extent are we in control of this process?
