In a diverse and innovative art environment, the intersection of cultures and artistic styles always brings new and creative experiences. The exhibition “The Language of Water” by artist Nicolás López is a testament to this and a meaningful new chapter in his artistic journey around the world.

“The Language of Water” is the statement of Nicolás López’s characteristic painting technique and the title he chose for his series of personal exhibitions and workshops in many countries worldwide. Watercolor works tell the inner spiritual stories of indigenous people and cultures, exploring the diversity of the world through artistic journeys from Peru to Europe, Asia, and now to Vietnam.

Hanoi-Exhibition “Accompany”

Until Dec 3
The Muse Artspace, 47 Trang Tien Street
From the organizer:

During the development process for the Hai Phong artists exhibition, we tried to perceive the geographic region through their artworks as the impact of living environment and regional culture is somewhat engraved into the art of each individual. We’d acknowledged this through their realistic sceneries in previous exhibitions; peaceful, romanticized, idealized, beautiful yet gloomy. However, as some artists put efforts to dive deeper into personal expression, their art becomes rich, and reflective, and reinvigorates the spirit of the scenery.

HCMC-Exhibition “A State Called Meow”

Until Dec 3, 09 am – 08 pm,
Annam Gallery, 371/4 Hai Ba Trung Street, D3
Entrance fee: 50,000đ/person
From the organizer:

Annam Gallery and Lân Tinh Foundation are thrilled to announce the first solo exhibition of Chu Tiến Thăng titled “A state called meow”.

Since ancient times, cats have always been a symbol in many different cultures around the world. They are mascots representing knowledge, wealth and luck. In the Asian 12 zodiac animals in countries such as China, Korea or Japan, the year “卯” represents the rabbit. The Vietnamese spoonerizes the Chinese word and have been calling it the year of the Cat.

Cats in everyday life scenes bring people endless inspiration and joy. Chu Tiến Thăng’s interest in cats also comes from the simplest beauties, such as when they are playing, dozing off, licking,… making us admire their flexible bodies. The actions of each body part are extremely independent, which stimulates the artist’s curiosity and will be the material for him to continue drawing in the future.

HCMC-Exhibition “White Blank”

Until Dec 9, 10 am – 07 pm, Tues – Sat,
Galerie Quynh, 118 Nguyen Van Thu Street, D1,
Registration link
From the organizer:

Galerie Quynh is pleased to present ‘White Blank’ – a highly anticipated exhibition of new works by Paris-based artist Tran Nu YênKhê. Known internationally in film for acting, art direction and costume design, YênKhê has been making art quietly for over three decades, though rarely exhibits her work publicly. In her first solo exhibition at the gallery, new and recent works created in Paris and Ho Chi Minh City are being presented for the first time.
In the series of sculptures titled ‘White Blank’, YênKhê creates fluid forms that provide a source of meditation and relief from the turmoil of the world in which we live. Made in a range of materials from plaster, cast bronze and composite, the soft, organic structures are unrecognizable as specific entities yet at the same time, feel familiar. Inspired by a quote from Kandinsky, “White sounds as a silence, a nothing before any beginning,” YênKhê’s sculptures are entirely white – the works only become tangible through the presence of light. They are defined entirely through subtle shadows and highlights; any change in light engenders a transformation of their anatomy.

Hanoi-Exhibition “Have Been – Eternally”

Until Nov 24, 10 am – 06:30 pm,
Hanoi Studio Gallery, No. 23-25 Mac Dinh Chi Street, Ba Dinh District
From the organizer:

Like small sandcrab running back and forth
Along small sand dunes.
Only to be swept away by the waves.

Awareness of existence and presence within the whirlwind of time is always a perennial anxiety for each individual. What are we doing here? Drifting, not connecting with the future, the past, or the present. Lâm Na is no exception. There are times when she seems to be in a trance. Just existing, breathing, looking to see everything drifting away, fading, and disappearing. A dreamer. Then, she encounters Earth. A meeting of a thousand years. Lâm Na, reborn through connecting with the Earth.

HCMC-Exhibition “Whoop Whoop”

Until Nov 30
Vin Gallery, 35/8 Nguyen Van Dau Street, Binh Thanh District,
From the organizer:

Vin Gallery is humbled to present “Whoop Whoop” a solo show by Katharina Arndt. Living and working between Berlin and Barcelona, Katharina Arndt displays her unique and honest details in her paintings. “Whoop Whoop” depicts how she captures the everyday life of a consumerist society through her colorful paintings. The paintings are also symbols, they appear as tools to articulate the immaterial objects that haunt human life, especially in the online world.

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.

Exhibition recalls liberation of Hanoi

Until Dec 31,
Hoa Lo Prison,

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.
