The Hanoi art scene was one of the first of the Southeast Asian cities to receive the attention of the international art circuit, with exhibitions of Vietnamese pioneer and modern artists happening in Hong Kong and Singapore in the early 1990s. Both exposures to and empathy for Vietnamese art and culture spelled its allure in major cities, as well as its connection with French sensibilities. How has the art scene evolved in Vietnam, what are some of its important art developments, and what directions are these taking now? How are Vietnamese artists shaping the contemporary scene regionally, what is the impact like? Listen to our esteemed panelists comprising gallerist Pham Phuong Cuc, artist/curator Richard Streitmatter-Tran and collector Adrian Jones speak with art adviser Jimmy Chua.
