“Back-to-Back: a series of discursive encounters” is an art history and theory program initiated by Sàn Art in 2018. Modelled on the format of university seminars, Back-to-Back’s bi-weekly sessions span over the course of a month where participants debate and dissect texts, theories and practices in art history while examining the position of Vietnamese contemporary art in relation to Western canonical models. Although primarily aimed at art practitioners (curators, artists, researchers, critics, etc.), Back-to-Back welcomes participants of any discipline that have a keen interest in contemporary visual culture.

Stay tuned for Back-to-Back 2019!
