Exhibition “Utopia Land” opens in Hanoi

The artworks of 15 artists from many countries will be displayed at “Utopia Land” Exhibition at Heritage Space, 1st Floor, Dolphin Plaza, 6 Nguyen Hoang, Hanoi from October 29 through November 30.

 

“Utopia Land” is the final exhibition of Contemporary Art exchange project ‘Month of Arts Practice – MAP 2017’, which plays a role in opening a platform for artists to set up surrealist, illusive and dreamy worlds with the abilities, tools and means of art.

“Utopia Land” exhibition presents artworks of 15 artists from Germany, France, Serbia, South Korea, India, America and Vietnam. All works are results of 5 exchange and working weeks of MAP. Disciplines are varied: painting, sculpture, photography, videography, multimedia, conceptual and public art, installation and site-specific art.

Together, they have been through all barriers, challenges, conflicts and harmonization arising from differences in culture, language, behaviors and cognition. Together, they expressed their own outlook without limit or inferiority because of presentation and transmitting styles despite cognitive and tools faults. Together, they have set up divergent yet open UTOPIA-LANDS which created opportunities for connections and dialogues in new channels and interfaces. 

When the usual communications become limited and distressed. When the population of mankind is expanding non-linearly day by day and individuals are isolated, slender and lost.

The 15 artists participating in the exhibition include: Bernard Pourriere and Philippe Richard  from France, Daniel Kerkhoff from the US, Daniel Rode and Ingo Vetter from Germany, Dim Tim Art from Serbia, Heaven Baek from South Korea, Ruchika Wason Singh from India, and seven artists from Vietnam – Linh Cam, Can Van An, Nguyen Thi Ha My, Nguyen Thi Hoai Giang, Nguyen Phu Vien, Phung Tien Son and Tran Hanh.

Founded by artist Tran Trong Vu, the Month of Arts Practice (MAP) aims to create an exchange and educational platform in Contemporary Art for young emerging Vietnamese artists with established selected international artists around the world. 

The project also creates opportunities of interaction and dialogue between artists and communities, in order to improve the understanding and experiments in Contemporary Arts for normal people by series of public programs. It is an effort to remove the gap between new arts/ artists and society.
