Hanoi-Film night “Phúc Tân Public Art Project”

Jul 19, 07:30 pm – 09 pm
TPD – The Centre for Development of Movie Talent, 51 Tran Hung Dao Street

From the organizer:

Screening documentary about “Phuc Tan public art project” and art talk by artist – art curator Nguyen The Son.

“Following the initial success of the public art project on Phung Hung Street, in order to bring a new entertainment and cultural space to the community, public art project in Phuc Tan ward area along the Red River can be considered as an effort by local authorities and a group of volunteer artists. This project is inspired by the very typical location, which is the intersection of many cultural & historical elements of the land Thang Long Ke Cho, used to be a trading gateway with boats next to the wharf…

A typical feature of this area is that although it is located along the historic Red River, Phuc Tan land in particular as well as the area along the river has not been well treated as the city front but back side…Developed by 16 artists with 16 works of art installation stretching over the remaining walls of over 200 meters, the project is expected to attract local community as well as benefit the culture, environment and tourism for the local inhabitants.”

(Artistic Curator Nguyen The Son)

Hanoi-Exhibition “Life Cycle”


Until Jul 14
1st floor, Mind Building – Olympia High School, Trung Van New Urban Area, To Huu Street, Nam Tu Liem District,

From the organizer:

The installation exhibition “Life cycle” is inspired by the life cycle of a caterpillar, growing from an egg to a caterpillar and then flourishing into a beautiful butterfly. Not only about visual art, but the exhibition also uses recycled materials like old newspapers, cardboard, plastic bags … to send messages about environmental protection through creating an additional new life cycle for materials that are considered waste. Through this exhibition, we want to give the audience an open and humane perspective on the life cycle of all things, about the continuity, and about the enterprise in transferring and regenerating values.

“…In the distance the stars
Nearby, fireflies…” – Phung Cung

Manzi is pleased to present ‘Xem đêm- Càng đêm’ – a light art installation by visual artist Nguyen Duc Phuong (aka Phuong Gio) and architect Nguyen Ha.

Divided into 2 different sections over a 4 week period, like 2 chapters of a novel, the light installation Chapter 1 – ‘Xem đêm’ and Chapter 2 – ‘Càng đêm’ is an intriguing combination of architecture and visual art, reflecting the similarities between the artist and the architect in the process of recreating space and form.

Hanoi-Exhibition: Musical Painting



Until August 31

L’Espace, 24 Trang Tien Street

From the organiser:

“Some people choose the straight path, others follow the unknown turns.” I belong to the second group. At the age of 16, I started working as a shift worker in a factory … and also started painting. At the age of 17, I was adventuring here and there. At the age of 20, I did my first solo exhibition. After a few years, I retired from painting because I was too hungry to explore other art forms such as theater, music and cinema. More or less, all of them have brought me happiness … During that time, I had the opportunity to meet famous artists and learn a lot.

In the end, I’m back with painting, in a serious way. And because music is my passion, so I’ve always pain with music. And now, I’m painting music.
