The programme’s activities will include an exhibition entitled “Vietnam Eye” on contemporary Vietnamese artworks. The display will be held in Hanoi from this November to February 2017 before arriving in Ho Chi Minh City, organisers said at a press conference in Hanoi on June 1.
Seventy-five outstanding contemporary artists from Vietnam will be selected and introduced in a book named “AIA Vietnam Eye” to be published in November.
The book will feature information about each artist along with articles on Vietnam’s contemporary art.
Prominent artworks will be sent to an exhibition at the Saatchi Gallery in London, the UK, in September next year, the organisers noted.
They added that this will be a great opportunity for Vietnamese artists to show off their talent and connect with their peers from around the world, as the Saatchi Gallery is the most prestigious arts exhibition venue in London.
Global Eye, established by collectors David and Serenella Ciclitira, held its first programme in the Republic of Korea in 2009. It has so far organised 28 exhibitions and published eight books on contemporary art in many Asian countries./.
