Sàn Art welcomed German artist Veronika Radulovic and scholar Pamela N. Corey, contributing authors of Don’t Call it Art!, for a discussion on the emergence of a contemporary arts scene in Vietnam; the role of friendship within documentation; and the makings of one of the most important archives illuminating the leading figures behind Vietnam’s contemporary and experimental arts movement.
This event was part of Sàn Art’s public programmes accompanying its show ‘Don’t Call It Art!’. The exhibited works revolve around three artists: Trương Tân, Nguyễn Minh Thành and Nguyễn Quang Huy – all widely considered to be pioneers of contemporary art in Vietnam. Their unconventional drawings and paintings, their art performances and installations – the first ever in Vietnam – have made them protagonists of an independent and young art scene that emerged in Hanoi in the early 1990s.
