Bodies Survey(ed), an exhibition marking Sàn Art’s return, traverses the presences and absences of the body across various mediums—painting, installation, wartime visual artifacts, artist’s book and livestream video—as a meditation on the visibility of bodies in art and beyond. Contours, postures and reveries of subjects ranging from the heroic to the nameless are animated by a wide selection of Vietnam-born artists, featuring masters Lê Phổ and Vũ Cao Đàm, propaganda painters Đào Đức and Dương Ánh, self-taught artist Trần Trung Tín and contemporary practitioners Ly Hoàng Ly, Nguyễn Thị Thanh Mai, Lê Hiền Minh,Võ Trân Châu, Ngô Đình Bảo Châu and Phạm Đình Tiến.
