HCMC-A Night of Spanish Music

Jul 7, 8 pm, 
Saigon Opera House
07 Cong Truong Lam Son, D1
From the organizer:

Classical music transcends languages and nationalities, so it’s appropriate to celebrate the 200th birthday of French Édouard Lalo with his music that paid homage to Spain along with selections from Spanish violin phenom Pablo de Sarasate, Spanish composer Enrique Granados and Cuban composer Ernesto Lecuona. While each of the men led different lives and had largely different styles, they are united by their appreciation for Spanish music.

12 Spanish Dances for String Orchestra by Enrique Granados are diverse in their themes and movements, they are share stylistic levity and elegance. Reflective of the early 20th century’s nationalist, Spanish style, they are the perfect way to usher in the night’s subject matter.

July 7,

Performance by top DJs and producers from around the world and Vietnam including Jordan Suckley, Ardelinze, Tommy Trash (Thomas Olsen), Kevin Krissen, Vinjaz, Acigode, Tillb Au, Dupli.K, and MC Zeno.



Hanoi-Pham Xuan Canh: A story of dreams

Jul 8, 3 pm – 7 pm, 
Thach Cau, Long Bien District,
From the organizer:

Pham Xuan Canh’s ‘A story of dreams’ is like an excursion from one everyday scene to another. The encounters among the elements in his photographs appear both accidental and predestined, lying somewhere between reality and fantasy. For some chance moments, the colors in what is normally seen from day to day suddenly illuminate like a kind of obsession, revealing an inherent mystery on which we would often miss out.

In Canh’s words: “For me, photography is both an interesting walk with the ordinary in my surroundings and a journey of quietly looking back into my heart. Walking around and focusing on observing helps me feel the small, simple things of everyday life that for many reasons we often accidentally fail to notice. I keep wondering a little bit about each and everything: Each photo is a true story of life, although carrying many shades of joy, sadness, happiness, or suffering, they still bear their own meanings and values. I’m just a wanderer too busy roaming about recording those life stories with my small camera.”

Hanoi-Phạm Ha Ninh – Entrusted Conjectures

Until Aug 6, 11 am – 07 pm (except Monday)
Manzi Exhibition Space, No. 2 Hang Bun alley,
From the organizer:

Entrusted Conjectures – an open studio by visual artist Ha Ninh Pham
Presenting a new series of “sculptures – measuring instruments” as a part of his on-going project titled “My Land”

How much of our perception of the world is shaped by the way we measure it?

Measurement refers to various systems of apparatus, units and rules based on which the uncertainty of value is reduced and can be expressed in a quantity. The standardization in measurement establishes a mutual understanding of quantities, and provides the basic reference for many disciplines. Measurement, thus, is a cornerstone of science, a fundamental step in framing and constructing the world.

HCMC-Exhibition “Neverwhere”

Until Aug 5, Tues – Sat, 10 am – 07 pm
Galerie Quynh, 118 Nguyen Van Thu, D1
From the organizer:

In the vast expanse of the universe, we find ourselves in an infinitesimally small space, encountering endless mysteries that defy our understanding. Throughout history, artists and scientists alike have been captivated by the idea of parallel realities. Drawing inspiration from quantum mechanics, string theory, and avant-garde art movements, Neverwhere delves into the uncharted territories of the imagination, transcending conventional norms and questioning the limitations of our perception. The exhibition brings together six visionary artists – Nadege David, Cian Duggan, Sandrine Llouquet, Ngo Dinh Bao Chau, Trong Gia Nguyen, and Vo Tran Chau – who invite us on a mesmerizing journey through the intersections of art, science, and spirituality. The title “Neverwhere” borrows from the eponymous novel by Neil Gaiman that depicts an unseen world beneath the sewers – LondonBelow– where strange destinies await, suggesting the idea of a physical space that does not yet exist in time.

Hanoi-Exhibition “Peculiar Interfaces”

Until July 23 (off Monday), 09 am – 07 pm
The Outpost, Roman Plaza Tower B1 (Floor 2), To Huu Street
From the organzier:

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.
