HCMC-Exhibition “Wandering Age”

Jul 28 -Aug 20,
Craig Thomas Gallery, 27i Tran Nhat Duat Street,

From the organizer:

Sculpture is a medium that has largely been overshadowed in Vietnamese contemporary art by painting. The modern form of sculpture that might be said to commence with Rodin has also been largely skipped over by the most recent generation of Vietnamese visual artists who tend to conceive of sculpture in the more contemporary terms of installation and conceptualism rather than in the classical sense. Perhaps uniquely for a young sculptor, Saigon-based Pham Dinh Tien has emerged as one of the most compelling young Vietnamese visual artists creating in the country today. Working primarily in bronze, Tien has rather quietly but no less impressively been producing strong works of sculpture for more than a decade.

HCMC-Leica Photo Exhibition: THE EYE OF ISTANBUL

Until Aug 24, 09 am – 05 pm
Leica Boutique Saigon & Level 2 – Deutsches Haus
33 Le Duan Blv, Ben Nghe Ward, District 1, HCMC

From the organizer:

Leica Vietnam proudly presents in cooperation with the Deutsches Haus Ho Chi Minh City the famous photo collection ‘The Eye Of Istanbul’ from Leica Hall of Fame Photographer – Ara Güler.

Istanbul, with one foot in Europe and the other in Asia, stands at the intersection of a multitude of cultures, religions and languages. At once modern and traditional, it’s a city that has fascinated and intrigued visitors for centuries. Instabul was historically in-strumental in the advancement of Christianity during Roman and Byzantine times, be-fore the Ottomans conquered it in 1453 CE and transformed it into an Islamic strong-hold and the seat of the Ottoman Caliphate. In 2015, Istanbul was named a European Capital of Culture, making the city one of the world’s most popular tourist destination.

HCMC-Exhibition ” Dept. of Speculation”

Until Aug 20,
Tues – Sat, and by appointment, 10 am – 07 pm
Galerie Quynh, 118 Nguyen Van Thu, Da Kao Ward, District 1

From the organizer:

Galerie Quynh is pleased to present ‘Dept. of Speculation’ — a group exhibition featuring new and recent projects by Nghĩa Đặng, Nadège David, Đỗ Thanh Lãng, Cian Duggan, Ngô Đình Bảo Châu, Trúc-Anh and Võ Trân Châu.

‘Dept. of Speculation’ is a non-hierarchical agency that materialises and thrives only in the realm of thoughts and possibilities. Its existence was unknown to many including its members — the speculators, until recently. Just as the speculators attempt to make sense of what is happening in their lives, the department begins to take form. The department functions on a conjectural, pseudo-scientific premise: ideas about time and space as we know them are subject to the speculators’ very own empirical and personal reconfigurations.
