On Sunday, Manzi Art Space will host A Sifted Gaze by Dan Drage - an American artist based in Hà Nội.

Featuring sculptures and silk paintings, A Sifted Gaze invites audiences to see everyday objects in a new way, in the value of their form, in the interplay between the individual objects and in the collective whole which they create together.

Born in Colorado, USA, in 1978, Drage graduated from Milligan College in 2001 with a degree in Visual Arts and Humanities. He and his wife relocated to Hà Nội in 2006 as Vietnamese language students. In 2010 they joined the German NGO Allianz Mission, and continue to work alongside the local team.

Drage is fortunate to spend half his time with the NGO helping communities in various forms of poverty, and half his time making art.

The exhibition opens at 6pm. The free entry exhibition will open until May 28. Manzi Art Space is at 14 Phan Huy Ích Street. — VNS
