Abstract and Minimalism Exhibition

Opening January 2

VICAS Art Studio

32 Hao Nam Street, Dong Da District, Hanoi

In order for Vietnamese art lovers to have more access to abstract art, and for Vietnamese artists to have opportunities to exchange and understand more about these arts, VICAS Art Studio takes the initiative to organize an exhibition on the occasion of our traditional New Year of the Rat (2020) with the title “Abstraction & Minimalism”.

There were 103 Vietnamese artists from all over the country and also from abroad supporting this initiative with 200 works submitted within just 5 months. 58 paintings and 3 sculptures of 46 artists have been curated for display.

“Hương’s Silk” Painting Exhibition

Vietnam Fine Arts Museum

66 Nguyen Thai Hoc St., Ba Dinh Dist., Hanoi

The exhibition includes 27 silk paintings whose backs have been all strengthened on Do paper. In particular, one among those paintings can be seen as an experiment that the painter tried to attach it with a turning axle to make a moving scenery.

Silk painting is a special material of the East, its origin associated with the Orient. When it comes to silk painting, people often think of its pure, dreamy and mystery

As for Nguyen Thu Huong, a female artist, perhaps the dream is valuable to her. Over the past ten years, she has never changed her drawing style. Huong’s painting probably takes “femininity” as the main theme and it all revolves around it, whispering about it. And so, Huong has kept her style since entering the fine arts school up to now.

HO CHI MINH CITY

PERFORMANCE

A O Show by Lune Production

6:00 pm, January 1 to 5

Ho Chi Minh City Opera House

7 Cong Truong Lam Son, Ben Nghe Ward, District 1

The A O Show features optical illusions and impressive acrobatics, paired with traditional music performances by a troupe of talented local artists.

Known as the Cirque du Soleil of Vietnam (minus the flashy outfits), this live show depicts the transition of rural Vietnam into today’s modern landscape, using props such as giant woven baskets, scaffolding, bamboo canes, and ropes.

Price range: VND630,000 - VND1,470,000

EXHIBITION

Exhibition “Singing to the Choir?” & “Silent Intimacy”

The Factory Contemporary Arts Centre

You are invited to two new exhibitions: ‘Singing to the Choir?’, a group exhibition by Phan Anh, Tran Minh Duc, and Ngoc Nau; along with ‘Silent Intimacy’, a solo exhibition by Dang Thuy Anh.

Works on display at the ‘Singing to the choir?’ exhibition present the artists’ reflections on humanity’s demonstrated attachment of purpose to an intangible realm justifying the meaning of life.

Meanwhile, ’Silent Intimacy’ is Dang Thuy Anh’s first solo exhibition in her ambitious artistic endeavor with apple snails, contemplatively dubbed with the impact of urbanization on human life.
