EXHIBITION

Hanoi-Photo Exhibition “Days in the Sun”


Matca Space for Photography

48 Ngoc Ha Street

A documentary photo exhibition on the remarkable life of Nguyen Van Chanh, the owner of the famous Luminor Photo photography stores in the North of Vietnam during the French colonial period.

Photos are selected from three albums of Nguyen Van Chanh and his eldest daughter Bach Diep – Vietnam’s first female film director. This is the first time their works are published after almost one century stored away.

Hanoi- Exhibitions “In the City” and “Long Lasting Dreams”

Vincom Center for Contemporary Art (VCCA)

B1 - R3, Vincom Mega Mall Royal City

72A Nguyen Trai Street, Thanh Xuan District,

“Long Lasting dreams” consists of 9 paintings on canvas – the latest works of Bui Quoc Khanh, created in 2019. The themes include social criticism, cultural, environmental, educational issues, and a visual language influenced by pop-art and graphic design, Bui Quoc Khanh’s paintings depict a vibrant space overflowed popular metaphorical images of from ancient times to the modern age, from the West to the East.

“In the City” is Doan Xuan Tung’s first solo exhibition, showcasing 12 works using acrylic and newspaper as a medium on canvas. The exhibition focuses on two main storylines: on the one hand, the daily life of city migrant workers, on the other hand, the lives of the emerging middle class – enjoying the utility of new residence areas.

HCMC-Exhibitions “Necessary Fictions” & “Broken Relationships”

The Factory Contemporary Arts Centre, 15 Nguyen U Di street, Thao Dien ward, District 2

Through their exhibition “Necessary Fictions”, artists Tammy Nguyen and Ha Ninh Pham respectively reveal the architectural and anthropomorphic dimensions of desire – their images playfully morphing the worlds of human, flora and fauna – revealing the study of time and morality as a deeply flawed, exploitative landscape whereby human whimsy often rules supreme.

‘Broken Relationships’ is an investigation by Nguyen Ngoc Thach into the chaos of the current world order and the loss of ethical ground in a human-to-human social contract

HCMC- Exhibition “Phenomenon ÷ (Time x Space)”



VinGallery, 6 Le Van Mien street, Thao Dien ward, District 2,


Yohei Yama returns to Vin Gallery with his second solo project with the gallery, four years after “The Power of Semiosis” (2015). Yama derives his works from nature, spinning the waves of the cosmos and webbing together the rhythm of natural forces. His oeuvre is distinguishable by its repetition and layering of lines, colour, patterns and more often than not creating optical effects that swell and vibrate.

“Phenomenon ÷ (Time x Space)” envisions the universe and its life-cycles where the future becomes the present and the present becomes the past.
