From nostalgia towards exploration: essays on contemporary art in Vietnam

Author: Natalia KRAEVSKAIA

Contemporary art in Vietnam, beginning from the early 90’s, experienced a tremendous transformation. The opening of a political space stimulated the emergence of new art forms, stylistic diversity, and a general activation of the art scene. This book offers the reader a view into this dramatic period of growth in the visual arts in Vietnam. The essays include investigations into subjects such as how art changes in a time of transition, the influence of market mechanisms on the art processes, analyses of new art forms in Vietnam, as well as personal impressions, artist profiles and exhibition reviews.

The book also includes works by artists Craig Walsh and Debra Porch who have participated in artist residency programs in Vietnam.
