An exhibition entitled “Substance - The inspiring Vietnamese and Italian women”, featuring 21 outstanding women from different professions, each of them representing a generation of Vietnamese and Italian women living in Hanoi who have made significant contributions to the society.

The artworks displayed in “Substance” are created through life-casting, a common technique in the movie industry. Twenty-one characters become artworks made of different materials, representing the inherently diversity of "substance" with a contemporary touch.

The sculptural installation “Facing” is the fruit of Julia Schleicher’s first experience in Vietnam during her residency at live.make.share.

In realising the growth of digital media in everyday context and the lack of its discussion in the local art conversations, The Outpost seeks to introduce artworks that engage with the amplifying presence of smart machines and digital technology through our exhibition and acquisition activities. “Peculiar Interfaces” serves as an abstract to The Outpost’s long-term dedication to explore and unpack how technology is impacting our relationships to one another, and to the world around us.

Hanoi-Exhibition “The Gardeners”

Until May 2, 10 am – 09 pm
Vincom Center for Contemporary Art (VCCA), B1 – R3, Vincom Mega Mall Royal City, 72A Nguyen Trai Street

From VCCA:

Vincom Center for Contemporary Art (VCCA) cooperated with Young Artists Club – Vietnam Fine Arts Association to introduce the exhibition “The Gardeners”, with nearly 100 works of 90 artists. Talented young artists from all over the country, diverse in forms from painting, graphics, sculpture to installation and video art.

The Gardeners was originally borrowed from the poem book title “The Gardeners” by poet Rabindranath Tagore. The journey of discovery, creation and artistic work is sometimes very similar to the work process of gardeners that requiring patience, calmness and a peaceful attitude in harmony with the currents of the nature. Because sometimes, artists have not found what they want in art, but the process of artistic work leads them to creative and successful values that they are not looking for. Tagore’s poetic, erudite, philosophical lyrics have inspired young authors’ latest works.

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.
