International Finger-Style Guitar Festival 2019

Fingerstyle: A new genre of solo guitar music, has been thriving in Vietnam in recent years. One simple way of describing this genre is that with only a single guitar a performer can play as if he is an entire band. Fingerstyle brings about a whole new perspective on the acoustic guitar in terms of techniques and the sounds a guitar can create. Being able to convey many styles and music genres, FS is creativity at its highest level. The player can freely develop new techniques and show their own colors…
IFSGF (Internatinal Finger-Style Guitar Festival): A series of international fingerstyle guitar concerts, an annual Asia event since 2010, with participation of famous fingerstyle guitarists from many different countries. This year marks the 10th anniversary of the concert in Asia. This is also the 5th concert edition held in Vietnam.

The Dogma Prize is pleased to present “Encounter”, a group showcase of fourteen artists applying various media to self-portraiture: from paintings, sculptures and installations to moving images and animation. Encounter seeks to reveal the deeper layers of personal stories and self-inquiries.

Exhibition “Phenomenon ÷ (Time x Space)”

Vin Gallery

6 Le Van Mien, Thao Dien, District 2, HCMC

Yohei Yama returns to Vin Gallery with his second solo project with the gallery, four years after “The Power of Semiosis” (2015). Yama derives his works from nature, spinning the waves of the cosmos and webbing together the rhythm of natural forces. His oeuvre is distinguishable by its repetition and layering of lines, colours, patterns and more often than not creating optical effects that swell and vibrate.

“Phenomenon ÷ (Time x Space)” envisions the universe and it’s life-cycles where the future becomes the present and the present becomes the past.
