Hanoi’s contemporary art scene is among the most rapidly evolving in the country, with the city’s list of galleries continually growing. Besides working with traditional materials like pigments, silk, papers, and lacquer on wood, the younger generation of Vietnamese artists has also become very active in involving different forms of art, such as installation, performance and video art.
In an exclusive experience with Destination Asia Vietnam, travellers can meet with an art director whose projects and activities focus on discovering different locations and cover specific cultural and political situations in both Vietnam and across Asia. Visit an art space for an ongoing contemporary art exhibition, or head to a private gallery belonging to an art curator who has been working to promote Vietnam Art to the world since the 1990s.
The country has also seen a progression of technological advancements in art installations in public spaces. Admire one of the virtual artworks accessible via a smartphone app and through the use of augmented reality, or stroll through two artworks on display at a public art project which uses recycled materials to connect the area with the Red River and the ancient Long Bien Bridge.
