Exhibition “iU.iU.iU” – Art by People with Autism

Exhibition room – Tòhe

8 Do Quang, Trung Hoa, Hanoi

Since 2006, Tòhe has been working with many young artists with autism – those whose talents are yet to be explored. We are proud to interact and explore arts with them, discover their inner world and bring their arts to many more people, affirming their special talent and the value that they can bring to the community.

Join us and explore the world of these young artists through the exhibition “iU.iU.iU” of paintings, sculptures, and especially the moving ‘luv’ stories of their lives!

Vietnamese Women’s Museum

36 Ly Thuong Kiet Street, Hoan Kiem District,

The exhibition “Mother and Nature” showcases paintings of women in natural settings by artist Van Duong Thanh, which were created with a combination of Vietnamese and Western techniques.



“Krossing Over” Arts Festival 2018

16 – 22 Apr 2018

Various venues in Ho Chi Minh City

Krossing Over Arts Festival was first started in 2017 by choreographer Sébastien Ly with support from the French Institute in Vietnam and Kerman, featuring interdisciplinary performances at various locations in Ho Chi Minh City. The Festival is all about crossings: between contemporary dance and other art forms; between local and international artistic approaches; and between the public and artists. Each performance will be presented twice at different locations, therefore the experience will vary every time.


Exhibition “8♡” by Truc-Anh

Galerie Quynh

118 Nguyen Van Thu Street, District 1

For his third solo exhibition at the gallery, Truc-Anh tells a complex and nuanced story of transformation and awakening.

The title of the show exemplifies these dynamics, as a reference to the video games of Truc-Anh’s childhood, while also alluding to metaphysical dimensions.

In particular, the symmetrical number eight – representing a perfect loop and infinity – appears in many of the works, while references to rebirth, healing and impermanence, interspersed with images of the ego, vanity and conceit, are also prevalent.

Exhibition “In One’s Breath – Nothing Stands Still” by Tuan Mami

The Factory Contemporary Arts Centre

15 Nguyen U Di, Thao Dien, District 2, Ho Chi Minh City

The exhibition is Hanoi-based artist Tuấn Mami’s first-ever solo show in Ho Chi Minh City.

The project is inspired by the ancient Muong epic ‘De Dat De Nuoc’ (‘The Birth of Soil and Water’), from which emerges a belief that there is spirituality in all beings, that the creation of the world is constantly in a state of chaos where humans struggle to cohabit harmoniously with other creatures, and especially with themselves.

Tickets: VND35,000 - VND25,000 (with appropriate student ID) - free for children under 16 (with appropriate ID)
