NDO/VNA – Japan’s contemporary artworks are being introduced to the public in Ho Chi Minh City at the “10 in Ho Chi Minh City” exhibition which opened on July 17.

Ten Japanese artists have brought 54 abstract artworks to the exhibition, covering various genres from oil painting to installations.

Speaking at the opening ceremony, Huynh Van Muoi, President of the Ho Chi Minh City Fine Arts Association, said that the exhibition takes place in the context of Vietnam and Japan’s celebration of the 45th founding anniversary of diplomatic ties, helping to tighten the two countries’ friendship and increase the exchange of their fine arts.

According to Muoi, the artworks reflect part of Japan’s contemporary fine arts which combine modern life and the preservation of traditional culture and history.

Aki Miwa, a painter whose works are on display at the exhibition, expressed her hope that such exhibitions will be organised more regularly to enhance the bilateral friendship and solidarity.

The exhibition will run at the Ho Chi Minh City Fine Arts Museum until July 21.
