HCM CITY - A contemporary art exhibition is showing more than 40 pieces of what curators describe as a multi-faceted Vietnamese art in HCM City. 

The Grapevine Selection 2024 features the artists' most recent works, each differentiated by a unique style, selected by the Art Advisory Board including art collector Ariel Phạm, curator and art researchers Đỗ Tường Linh and Sophie Huang.

The exhibition focuses on artists whose works represent the current artistic times, setting milestones for the future of long-term art archiving and collecting.

From Hà Nội, Phạm Tuấn Tú shows his traditional wood sculptures, bearing the imprint of time while a collection of works by Nguyễn Thị Diệp and Thùy Anh Đặng is full of feminity and tell modern gender based stories. 

Hà Nội-based artist Lâm Na shows a depiction of her search for Phùng Nguyên's ancient culture over 4,000 years ago. 

Other artists at the exhibition include Lê Thừa Tiến from Huế with his most recent lacquer works, Mai Huyền Chi from Đà Nẵng with short videos about the marginalised community and a self-portrait of Huy Phan from the central highland city of Đà Lạt.

The annual Grapevine Selection also aims to fulfill the art collective's mission of promoting Vietnamese contemporary art at home and abroad.

It runs until June 30 from 10am to 5pm at Institute of Smart City and Management (ISCM), 232/6 Võ Thị Sáu, District 3. - VNS
