From the organizer:

Come to “One Country”, a group exhibition featuring works from fifteen Vietnamese young and mid-career visual artists.

Vietnam’s three most prominent fine arts academies are located in Hanoi, Hue and Ho Chi Minh City respectively. Aspiring artists tend to gravitate to the institution that is nearest to their hometown and to continue there career in one of the three cities after their graduation. The result is a trifurcated Vietnamese national art scene which arguably leads to a sum that is less than the whole of its parts.

Beginning in 2011, the organizer began introducing a mix of young Hanoi artists into our regular program of exhibitions. Aspiring to contribute to the creation of a single Vietnamese art scene, we will now be integrating Hue-based artists into our program over the coming months and years. The “One Country” collection – featuring works from artists based in all three centers – is the beginning of that process.

Opening: Fri 26 Jun 2015, 6 pm

Exhibition: 26 Jun – 25 Jul 2015
