Hanoi-No Rain Without Clouds: Preserving Vietnamese Art for the Future

Oct 20 – Dec 27, virtual exhibition via the online platform Kunstmatrix
Nov 7 – 15
Vietnam Women’s Museum, 36 Ly Thuong Kiet Street

No Rain Without Clouds brings together a multitude of perspectives and stories around memory and identity, in doing so contemplating the role of art collections in the preservation and promotion of Vietnam’s arts and culture, as well as the dynamics between traditions and urban life.

With a name that brings to mind the infinite cycles of nature and the transformations necessarily following periods of hardships and challenges, the exhibition responds to the context of 2020 through experiments with platforms and audience’s experience, materialising simultaneously as both a virtual showing (via the Kunstmatrix platform) and a physical exhibition at Vietnam’s Women Museum (Hanoi).

No Rain Without Clouds presents an array of paintings, sculptures and video works curated from the prestigious RMIT Collection of Contemporary Vietnamese Art.

The exhibition showcases 32 works from the following 22 artists: Hoang Duong Cam – Nguyen Nghia Cuong – Dinh Cong Dat – Ta Minh Duc – Ha Tri Hieu – Nguyen Manh Hung – Bui Cong Khanh – Duong Thuy Lieu – Le Phi Long – Ha Thuc Phu Nam – Ngoc Nau – Phan Thao Nguyen – Le Hoang Bich Phuong – Pham Khac Quang – Phan Quang – Nguyen The Son – Thien Do – Tiffany Chung – Pham Van Tuan – Ngo Van Sac – Hoang Duy Vang – Hoang Nam Viet

The event is a part of Vietnam Festival of Creativity & Design 2020, organised by RMIT University Vietnam in collaboration with United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), Vietnam National Institute of Culture and Arts Studies (VICAS) and COLAB Vietnam and other partners in the creative industries, with Hanoi Grapevine as media partner.

CINEMA

Documentary Film “The Glorious Pain”

Oct 18 – 19, 7 pm
L’espace, 24 Trang Tien Street, Hanoi
Oct 28, 7 pm
Location information will be provided for early registration when we select a location in Can Tho
Nov 1, 7 pm
Institut d’Échanges Culturels avec la France – IDECAF
31 Thai Van Lung, D.1, HCMC

“More than 100 hours of filming, 18 months accompanying the characters on the stage of passion and also in the life puzzles to complete in 50 minutes of the film, which are bare, emotional, and respectful moments…”

The Glorious Pain is a documentary film which features the journey of a small classical Vietnamese opera (Tuồng) troup and one of the very few left, as they travel and perform through the Western Vietnam countryside. The Royal characters, behind the closed curtains are commoners and peasants who struggle to make ends meet. The troup is on the verge of disbandment because the main artists were going through a hard time. What future awaits the troup and its artists? Would it disappear in the same way as many other traditional art forms?

The Glorious Pain is produced by The Department of Entertainment Program and is part of the VTV Special Documentary Series. It took more than a year from the first day of location scouting until the film was completed.

The Glorious Pain is also among the projects featuring traditional culture of Vietnam which receive funding from the Film, Archive and Music Lab (FAMLAB). This fund is part of the Cultural Heritage for Inclusive Growth Initiative by British Council.
