Sàn Art is an independent, artist-run exhibition space and reading room located in Ho Chi Minh City. Dedicated to the exchange and cultivation of contemporary art in Vietnam. We aim to support the country’s thriving artist community by creating opportunities that provide exhibition space, residency programs for young artists, lecture series and an exchange program that invites international artists/curators to organize or collaborate on exhibitions.
Dinh Q Le, Tuan Andrew Nguyen, Phu Nam Thuc Ha and Tiffany Chung founded San Art in October 2007.
Sàn Art is a non-profit organization established with the support of the ‘Vietnam Foundation for the Arts. In Vietnam, ‘non-profit’ status does not legally exist. Also, no art council exists to support independent artists and arts organizations. In order for Sàn Art to continue its focus on experimental contemporary art practice (as opposed to operating as a commercial gallery), Sàn Art must seek external funding to run its programs. In addition to applying for international grants for relevant exhibitions and projects, Sàn Art seeks generous donation by individuals and sale of work by artists it collaborates to assist ongoing infrastructural and programming costs. If you would like to become a supporter of Sàn Art, please send cash or cheque donation, large or small to:
