HÀ NỘI — New art showcasing the lives and worlds of children with autism are unveiled at an exhibition entitled Không Thời Gian (No Time) that is being held at the Exhibition House at 29 Hàng Bài Street in Hà Nội.

According to the organisers, Tòhe Fun, the exhibition is expected to provide a motionless space full of love that celebrates the spirit of the young artists.

Không Thời Gian includes groups of works under two main themes: "Love" and "Safety Zone". Eleven pieces of art by little artists with autism from Tòhe Fun art club are on display. The artists include Văn Minh Đức, Phạm Bình Minh and Lee Nguyễn Sahae, along with some from Tottochan Centre.

The exhibition will run until August 4. Entrance is free.

Tòhe is a social enterprise established in 2006 that provides arts-based creative learning for disadvantaged children. Their paintings will be selected, re-designed and printed on lifestyle products like clothes, accessories and toys. Five per cent of the profits will be given back to the children whose works are chosen. The enterprise has also organised many events and art exhibitions for the city’s kids, including its Kidstallation series – the first art installation event for children in Việt Nam. — VNS
