Hanoi-Art Exhibition “Le Sourire de la Mutation”

Until Nov 4

L’Espace, 24 Trang Tien Street

Featuring a poetic perspective of Vietnam in its metamorphosis. The three artists coming from three different countries – France, Belgium and Vietnam – explore the theme of the changes in urban space through different perspectives: visual, dance and installation art. The scenery of Vietnam’s metropolitan cities is illustrated in Truong Minh Thy Nguyen’s mural. The sun jacket covered ladies on motorbikes become the muses for Emmanuelle Vincent’s dance piece. And objects, they dangle between fantasies and traditions in the installation artwork of Pierre Larauza.

This exhibition is within the framework of the Dance Festival “Europe Meets Asia in Contemporary Dance” 2017.

Free entry

Hanoi- Solo Exhibition “Project Habit/At” by Ruchika Wason Singh

Until Sep 30, 11 am – 7 pm

Huong Ngo Art Space, 3rd Floor Nola café, No. 89 Ma May Str., Hoan Kiem District.

A solo exhibition by Indian artist Ruchika Wason Singh who has taken a new approach: accommodation and migration – some of the biggest problems (in the world) nowadays. Instead of portraying scenes where people sit in crowded places in buildings, Singh takes a look inside each person living in metropolitan area. Behind the modern and flashy lights of cities, the symbol of wealth and prosperity which is frequently advertised in the media, it is the problems of fitting in, the complexities of immigration/ migration, the separation of public space and the inequality between social groups. Rather than feeling happy for having met all the basic needs (in life), people tend to feel depressed and crowded in artificial places and even in the presence of mankind.

Free entry
