Hanoi-Exhibition by Hoang Duong Cam

Galerie Quynh

118 Nguyen Van Thu Street, district 1

You are invited to the sixth solo exhibition of Hoang Duong Cam, showcasing his new sculptures and some of the artist’s most ambitious paintings to date.

The works on display reflect a fixation on an often irreconcilable distance, whether it’s the gap between ambition and resignation, between the heroic and the condemned in a nation’s history, or between calculated composition and inexplicable effect.
