HCMC-Exhibition “museum of the mind”
685/30/59a Xo Viet Nghe Tinh, Ward 28, Dist Binh Thanh,
A solo exhibition “museum of the mind” by Phan Anh.
This half-real half-fictional museum presents the artist’s personal archive of the memories from his late grandmother. The objects or artifacts (collective memories) are metamorphosed (into personal memories) to reflect the identities of two individuals whose beliefs and ideologies are influenced by differing geographical and historical contexts – in which, the mind and compassion of humankind are the shared heirloom to be inherited and continued. The repetition of images and human behaviours are intentionally observed, documented, and reconstructed, not only to replicate history, but also to pose questions or, in a way, re-identify the given objects and phenomena.
HCMC- Exhibition “ELLIPSIS”
Toong Minh Khai, 126 Nguyen Thi Minh Khai Str, District 3
An attempt by 4 image-making artists: Danny Bach, Minh Pham, Dat Vu and Cietisoo Nguyen, to connect and share their personal approaches to photography and image-making with the creative community.
HCMC- Exhibition “King” by Pham Thanh Toan
Craig Thomas Gallery, 27i Tran Nhat Duat Street, Tan Dinh Ward, District 1
Toan’s “King” collection comprises of a bold batch of primarily over-sized canvases with several of the works themselves being quadriptychs and pentaptychs. The effect of such large paintings, often done in luxuriantly thick layers of imported oils, is immediate and visceral.
Opening hours: Monday to Saturday 11 am to 6pm; Sundays 12 to 5 pm; and by appointment
