AIA Vietnam Eye is a celebration of Vietnam’s vibrant contemporary art scene and is the eighth project in the Global Eye Programme, which was established in 2009 by David and Serenella Ciclitira in collaboration with the Saatchi Gallery in order to nurture artistic talent across Asia’s emerging art scenes.
The book and the exhibition will offer an overview of one of the newest and most exciting scenes in the global art world. Vietnam has developed rapidly in the last ten years with a new generation of contemporary artists who balance cultural and social issues with a contemporary outlook. This is a generation of artists who are aware of both the history of Vietnamese art as well international art world.
Quotes of Serenella Ciclitira and Nigel Hurst.
19 artists will take part in the exhibition that was also kicked off today at Casa Italia, Hanoi
Additional information: 56 artists out of 180 entries have been selected to showcase in the book. The selection process [for artists showcased in the book] started in Vietnam in June this year.
