Hanoi-Bloom Within Nothingness

Until Apr 10,
Hanoi Studio Gallery, No. 23-25 Mac Dinh Chi Street, Ba Dinh District,
From the organizer:

Nguyen Minh Quan spends a considerable amount of time admiring flowers, observing people, coming and going, rising and falling within the inevitable bloom and withering. These folks, who are represented by flowers, burst forth with passion, warmth, and fantasies.

These “flower beings,” glowing in the moment, proudly display themselves and their exuberant joy. Flowers glow so brightly that we wonder if this is the “limit,” and what sort of grace allows for such beauty.

Then, in an instant, the color of the blossoms pervades the space, mingling with reality and melting into the universe.

HCMC-’Untitled (7 Events)'

Until May 4, 10 am – 07 pm, Tues – Sat
Galerie Quynh, 118 Nguyen Van Thu Street, D.1
From the organizer:

A major solo exhibition by Hanoi-based artist Pham Minh Hieu. Presenting work developed over the past 10 years, the exhibition reflects the core ideas that represent the artist’s practice. An exhibition of exhibitions, Untitled (7 Events) has theoretical underpinnings in speculative realism¹ and new materialism². Pham has created imaginative ‘total installations’ that immerse spectators in an aesthetic experience. This way of making allows for divergence where different disciplines and genres intertwine, their boundaries fraying and transforming.

HCMC-Exhibition “The Attention Deficit”

Until April 14, 12 pm – 10 pm, Tues – Sun,
O Cocktail & Art Bar, 292/15 Dien Bien Phu, Ward 17, Binh Thanh District

From the organizer:

Russian artist Ivan Shevnesky has lived in Ho Chi Minh for more than 8 years, bringing forth a series of colorful paintings derived from his inner self, personal experiences, and journeys.

The state of attention represents the constant psychological evolution of humans. In an era where external factors increasingly cause distractions, paying attention becomes more complex and sophisticated. These factors manifest as multi-sensory information that we must continuously process, creating chaos in every aspect of life. Consequently, attention becomes a luxury and a desire in certain situations, evolving into syndromes that people proudly regard as innovations. Drawing parallels between internal and external chaos, Ivan conveys his observations on canvas with contemporary brush strokes and colors, rooted in European modern art.

A territory residing “in the middle.” Amidst the past, amidst the future. Between the edges of the tangible and the boundless. What we once understood about the contemporary realm now materializes as sudden occurrences, seemingly sensible yet rich in anomalies. A familiar obsession, seemingly empty and lacking in information.
