HÀ NỘI — A multisensory exhibition on Shan tea, the wild tea trees grown by ethnic minorities in the northern mountainous province of Hà Giang, will open to the public from 6pm on June 1 at French cultural centre L’Espace.

Entitled Trà ART, the exhibition is the result of the same name art project which was initiated by the Paris-based Vietnamese photographer Nguyễn Thị Tường Vân.

The project brings together five artists from five different fields to collaborate. They include animator Nguyễn Quỳnh Phương, 3D artist Marcus Bowler, the late painter Gérald Gorridge, sculptor Trần Thu Hằng, and artist/musician Ngô Hồng Quang.

Trà ART is an experience that will awaken the five senses and show a world of Shan tea through different art forms. Audiences will also have the chance to witness a dance performance by Mai Anh with background music written by musician Quang while enjoying premium Shan tea at the opening at 6pm on June 1.

The free entry exhibition will run until July 9. L’Espace is at 24 Tràng Tiền Street. — VNS
