Hanoi-Exhibition “Migration and Identity”


Opening: Feb 26, 6 pm

Exhibition: Feb 27 – Mar 13, 9 am – 7 pm

Goethe Institut, 56-58 Nguyen Thai Hoc

With the number of immigrants in Europe being higher than ever, migration is a highly topical issue particularly in Germany. The exhibition shows three artistic positions that deal with questions of identity in a sometimes very personal way.

Hanoi-Exhibition “Polyhedron” by Nguyen The Hung

Opening: Feb 2, 6 pm
Exhibition: Feb 2 – 28
L’Espace, 24 Trang Tien Street

“Polyhedra” is an exhibition following the series of three collections “And the flowers fell from the sky”, “Little Flowers” and “Lazy days”. In his semi-abstract style, Nguyen Hung The assembles pictures cut, gold leaf or more traditional materials, such as DO paper glued on fabric. He composes great characters, dressed in brocade similar to those of the Thai ethnic group, held in majesty in a world filled with myriads of small vegetable seeds.

Inspired by Buddhism and meditation of nature, Nguyen Hung The wants to discover, dig deep into the life on earth to find these seeds of love and hope, just waiting to sprout. The public will discover the new collection of Nguyen Hung The, new creations as well as older works, never exhibited but have been taken and reworked by the artist.

Until Feb 20, 10 am – 6 pm from Wed to Sun


15th floor, Hanoi Creative City Building, 1 Luong Yen Street

The first solo exhibition by Quynh Dong in Vietnam. The artist designs a spectacle with layers upon layers of images, which have the ability to challenge the representation of cultural stereotypes and at the same time creates new perceptions in the most unexpected manner.

Hanoi-3D Painting Exhibition “World, Magic & Fun”

Feb 20 - April 17 (Weekday: 5 pm – 9 pm, Weekend: 10 am – 9 pm)

5th floor, Hanoi Creative City, 1 Luong Yen Street

Following four successful editions in Belgium (one in Brussels and 3 at the Belgian coast during summertime), ‘3D World Magic & Fun’ starts its first edition in Hanoi.

‘3D World Magic & Fun’ is a unique event with huge painted backdrops and the visitor as the missing link. He or she completes the scene by carrying out some act, usually with a funny note. Meanwhile friends or family members take photographs of the performer-of-service.

The majority of sets consist of scenes with animals because the animal world is an inexhaustible source of fun confrontations with humans: together with a cute penguin you wake up a tall polar bear, or will you bring back home a lost dinosaur? Or why not frighten a giraffe with a small spider? But… ‘3D World Magic & Fun’ offers you so much more: an original encounter with The Minions, a game of tennis with an attractive Western lady, hiding for a big, big egg or – why not – becoming member of The Simpsons-family, or drinking coffee in a strange way?

This and much more at ‘3D World Magic & Fun Hanoi’ where the visitor is the hero, for it is he or she who completes the scene and makes the picture unforgettable.
