Hanoi-Exhibition “Illo Elysium”

Until Nov 6, 
Work Room Four, 31 Alley 67 To Ngoc Van Street, Tay Ho District
From the organizer:

Def: ILLO: Abbreviation for illustration. ELYSIUM: A place or state of ideal happiness; paradise.

Illo Elysium is an exquisite glimpse inside an exceptionally lively mind. A perfect imagined reality, unique in character and definition. With unwavering humour and unavoidable “cuteness” all carefully invented, dreamed and executed with a distinct dose of reality and extraordinary precision.

Illo Elysium is a body of work created in Hanoi from 2020 – 2023. This self directed collection of illustration is not part of a commercial commission. The motivation for this work is best described by Anastasiia herself; “All these characters, the imaginary and real places, and objects are just falling/leaking/swimming out of my head onto paper.” Illo Elysium marks the first solo showcase in Hanoi of these escaped creations.

Hanoi-Exhibition “Birdsong”

Until Dec 17, 11 am – 07 pm, Tues – Sun
Manzi Exhibition Space
No. 2 ngõ Hàng Bún, Ba Dinh District
From the organizer:

An exhibition by Trần Trung Tín entitled ‘Birdsong’ on the occasion of the late artist’s 90th birthday anniversary

Trần Trung Tín (1933 – 2008), a talented man with an exceptional life born into a bizarre epoch, had started painting merely as a way to go through the aftermath of an ideological crisis. Stuck in the extreme disillusionment and suppression, forbidden to speak up his thoughts or write out his opinions, Trần Trung Tín began to draw. In such a strange twist of fate, the used-to-be actor/announcer/film screenwriter then spent the entire last half of his life painting ceaselessly and quietly, and unexpectedly became the most absurd and brilliant phenomenon of Vietnamese art.

Hanoi-Exhibition “Fragility Eternity”

Until Nov 5, 10 am – 07 pm, Tues – Sun
Gate Gate Gallery, 55 Van Mieu Street,
Registration Link
From the organizer:

Continuing the story of the past intertwined with the present, Gate Gate Gallery presents “Fragility Eternity | Mong manh vĩnh cửu” – a solo exhibition by multimedia artist Trần Minh Đức. The exhibition will present 15 multi-media installations.

Stepping into the space of Fragility Eternity, you are immersed in a world that is both mischievous and playful, yet full of reflection. Persistent in his artistic practice inspired by reflections on memories and historical branches from political cultural events closely related to stories from his family, from relatives, and from the neighborhood, Trần Minh Đức continues his journey of penetrating into the always-latent conflicts between different historical records through the image of the stars. Throughout the pink color from the installation “Những bông hoa hồng nở bung độ xuân về” to “Những vì sao mọc” or the dazzling pink LED light of “Xây dựng vì sao”, you are filled with the transience and emptiness of all these stories and histories. Mong Manh Vĩnh Cửu seems to gently touch the emotions, memories, and perceptions of each viewer in the space – like a passing breeze, or the lingering scent of a flower from a moment that was very far away.

Exhibition recalls liberation of Hanoi

Until Dec 31,
Hoa Lo Prison,

An exhibition, named “The Roar of the Red River” which has two parts.

HCMC-Assemblage: Me, my story and I

Oct 3-30; 10:30 am – 06:30 pm, Tues, Thurs & Sat,
Không gian 27A, 27A Nguyen Cu Street, D2, 
From the organizer:

“Assemblage: Me, my story and I” is an attempt to explore the many paths the artists take in their works to reflect lifelong desires to find a unified self. The diversity of the artists’ artworks, practices and memories that draw from every day in their unique communities is not about fitting in, it is about trying to acknowledge the multiple worlds one inhabits.

In the group exhibition “Assemblage: Me, my story and I”, ten artists are reclaiming their past and presenting realities of existence as well as creating alternative discourses by finding clues from memories that can be personal, communal, regional or universal. It is the search for stories and narrations, often on the margins, that is a powerful, multi-layered recognition that the self may always remain both hidden and revealed to a retrospective look at the routes one takes in pursuit of one’s own authenticity.

Hanoi-Exhibition “Stratum Zero”

Until Dec 3; 09 am – 07 pm, Tues – Sun,
The Outpost Art Organisation, Roman Plaza Tower B1 (Floor 2), To Huu Street,
From the organizer:

Stratum Zero displays a wide range of works by Vietnamese artists in The Outpost Collection. The exhibition attends to the analysis of the aesthetic context and construction of the contemporary Vietnamese spirit and artistic landscape evoked from the works. That analysis and construction is expressed through the practice of processing and restructuring the material language, through marking the enduring flow of Asian folklore and philosophy, as well as hidden, peripheral historical perspectives.

Hanoi-Exhibition “In the Forest”

Until Oct 29, 09 am – 08 pm,
Floor B3, 136 Hang Trong Street, Hoan Kiem District,
From the organizer:

An exhibition by the twin artists Le Brothers. While it is a conversation between the duo and the external world, unlike their previous works, it looks at the entities existing in the external world as subjects existing alongside the artists, not just a pretext to reflect a mind-body-spirit’s narrative.
