The exhibition includes a variety of traditional and contemporary works by 93 artists from the city and Cửu Long (Mekong) River Delta provinces, mostly members of the Việt Nam Fine Arts’ Association.

Highlighted works send messages about war, love and peace.

Works featuring HCM City’s development through the artists’ new vigour and passion leave a strong impression on viewers.  

 

“Many paintings and sculptures, in lacquer and oil, acrylic, wood and composite, at the exhibition are the results of creative camps launched by Việt Nam Fine Arts’ Association and HCM City Fine Arts Association last year. We hope our exhibition will display different tastes of contemporary southern Việt Nam,” a representative of the event’s organising board, HCM City Fine Arts Museum.
