From the organizer:

For this February, 11:11 d’Artistes is promoting self-reflection, especially through one’s own emotions and mental processes through the idea of “Introspection” with a solo exhibition from Mzung Nguyen.

Mzung Nguyen – a Vietnamese multidisciplinary artist is establishing her grounds in the Visual Art scene through her latest interdisciplinary form of art. With a background in Films and Journalism, Mzung elegantly carried her powerful message and feelings about the environment, ecological philosophies, and contemporary social issues to her artwork in this exhibition.

Hanoi-Exhibition “Fate”

Until Mar 25, 10 am – 06:30 pm
Hanoi Studio Gallery, No. 23-25 Mac Dinh Chi Street, Ba Dinh District
From the organizer:

There is something that echoes in the voice of the painter, and her lit up face.

“I have finally been able to draw the face of Buddha.
In fact, I have been praying that he would let me draw his face..”

The way a young female painter opens her heart after countless failures, facing her own difficult challenge to draw a face from her own imagination- the face of the Buddha. A face that has been framed by concepts of ancient aesthetic and convention.

Travel down the thousands years road of history, generations of artists have been receiving their inspiration from the scared ones. We wonder, from which auspicious breeze of wind, did the female artists receive their inspiration to recreate Buddha portraits again for themselves and for their generation?

Hanoi-Exhibition “Harmonize”

Until Apr 25, 09:30 am – 06 pm
V-Art Space, Floor 1 Ciputra Club, Bac Tu Liem District
From the organizer:

After the success of two solo exhibitions “It” (2005) and “The Corner to See” (2014), visual artist Tran Trung Thanh remarks on another decade of hard work with the “Harmonize” exhibition. The artist’s journey in search of answers to questions about history, the development of society, and the intersection of life, science, and art is recorded via more than 30 oil paintings. Accompanying the exhibition is artist Vuong Pat Cam and his impressive works about Hanoi.

Meticulous, persistent, and profound are what we can say about the process of Tran Trung Thanh creating his artworks. Since the Jeunes Regard competition for young artists in 2004, Tran Trung Thanh’s painting style has become more and more bold.

Neither surrealism nor hyperrealism, Tran Trung Thanh encodes his notions of life into unique characters. Each painting presents a social issue of Vietnam or the world along with questions about history, international diplomacy, and the intersection of life – science – art.

“Harmonize” is the third solo exhibition of artist Tran Trung Thanh.

HCMC-Exhibition “All Aboard”

Until Apr 1, 10 am – 07 pm
Galerie Quynh, 118 Nguyễn Văn Thủ, Đa Kao ward, D1,

From the organizer:

An adherent of Buddhist philosophy, Nguyen Manh Hung proposes that death is a journey and karma is its luggage filled with good and bad deeds as one goes about one’s daily life. Some prepare for their post-life with sophisticated funeral rituals; others fill their luggage with only good karma hoping to arrive at a place that may not exist. In his characteristically playful adaptation of everyday scenarios, Nguyen Manh Hung’s latest series of work in the exhibition ‘All Aboard’ conjures up a highly contrasting and absurd pairing: a frenzied crowd hurriedly and narrowly holding onto a sacred gate, which leads to the unknown. While poking fun at the living’s obsession with heaven — a realm that exceeds the comprehension of earthly beings, this series reminds us that death is highly personal and unique: how we live reflects our preparation for this journey. Like a command, ‘All Aboard’ urges us to contemplate the meaning of human existence as characterised by our own subjective understanding of what lies on the other side of the gate.

Hanoi Studio Gallery, No. 23-25 Mac Dinh Chi Street, Ba Dinh District

From the organizer:

Tết Art – an annual event that we, along with painters and sculptors, always want to bring to the public every Spring.

The nostalgic north wind, the crowded street, and the year-end hustle. The season of busyness, the “walking”, the “watching”, the “sightseeing”, and moments of family reunion.
