|Pham Khac Quang's etched painting
HA NOI (VNS) — An exhibition of etched paintings from artists of Viet Nam and Belgium has opened at the Museum of Fine Arts and Ceramics in Verviers City.
Under the auspices of the Wallonie-Bruxelles International, the Dialogue of Viet Nam-Belgium Etched Paintings is being held first in Belgium from September 14 to October 19 and in Viet Nam in April next year.
A statement from event organisers which was released yesterday said Vietnamese artist Pham Khac Quang would be joining colleagues Le Huy Tiep, Ngo Anh Co, Nguyen Nghia Phuong, Phan Hai Bang and Pham Khac Quang in the artwork display, along with Belgian Pol Authom and his colleagues.
With the exhibits, participating artists aim to help audiences discover the typical cultural traits of the two countries, surpassing the cultural assimilation sparked by globalisation.
Also the display enables the public to learn about and experience contemporary artwork from a far-away land that they rarely have a chance to encounter.
Working sessions and exchanges among artists and students from both sides will be held either in Verviers or Ha Noi. — VNS
