Free entry

Exhibition “West Lake” by Anna-Maria Ory

Dong Phong Art Gallery

03 Ly Dao Thanh Street

Hoan Kiem District, Hanoi

The title of the exhibition is “West Lake”, as several paintings were painted on the west coast of the lake.

The subject and technique of the pictures mix the elements of both Eastern and Western traditions, in an attempt to establish connections between two very different cultures which nevertheless have a lot in common.

Exhibition “Gang of Five, Chancing Modern”

Vietnam Film Studio

No. 4 Thuy Khue Street, Hanoi

The Gang of Five, members Hong Viet Dung, Ha Tri Hieu, Dang Xuan Hoa, Tran Luong and Pham Quang Vinh hold an esteemed position in the history of fine art in Vietnam’s post-Doi Moi (Reform) era. They emerged in the early 80’s as Vietnam was struggling to rebuild after decades of war. Five male artists bound by friendship and a passion to express themselves freely without constraint, with a hope for the future that in the past was inconceivable, they pursued their dreams and consequentially inspired others to follow.

The exhibition site takes place at the Vietnam Film Studio where the new works of the artists will be presented along with a collection of archival materials highlighting a journey that traces their aesthetic development; the unique separate-togetherness that sustained the Gang of Five; the social environment that might have contributed to their acclaim while at the same time concealed their practices from thorough art historical discourse.

EXHIBITION

Exhibition “Spirit of Friendship”

The Factory Contemporary Arts Centre

A survey exhibition highlights the role and contribution of artist friendships in furthering the development of experimental art practice in Vietnam, since 1975, featuring 22 artist-groups from across the country.

For adults: VND35,000

For students: VND25,000 (with appropriate student ID)

For children under 16: free (with appropriate ID)

Entry is free on the opening night.

Exhibition “Abandoned by Heaven” by Bui Thanh Tam

Craig Thomas Gallery

27(i) Tran Nhat Duat, Tan Dinh Ward, District 1

You are invited to “Abandoned by Heaven”, a solo exhibition of oil and Đông Hồ folk paintings on canvas by Hanoi-based artist Bui Thanh Tam.

At first glance, the paintings of Bùi Thanh Tâm’s “Abandoned by Heaven” collection project an air of innocence and a pollyanish sense of contentment. The doe-eyed figures in the paintings look to be in the midst of living happy and prosperous lives, but there is something amiss lying just underneath the surface of the paintings.

Exhibition “Paradise Lost” by Hoang Thanh Vinh Phong

The Factory Contemporary Arts Centre

15 Nguyen U Di, Thao Dien, District 2

‘Paradise Lost’ by Hoàng Thanh Vĩnh Phong (b. 1971) invites us into a world where the familiar is made strange, the mundane mythologised and the symbolic re-arranged. Through the shifting of shape and twisting of material, images and objects from the everyday are taken out of context, heightened with a sense of ambiguity, asking us to look beyond what our first glance has to offer.

Tickets:

For adults: VND 35,000

For students: VND 25,000 (with appropriate student ID)

For children under 16: free (with appropriate ID)

Entry is free on the opening night.
