San Art Productions

Where an artist, curator and a non-visual arts business/organization collaborate in the making of new artwork

San Art welcomes the opportunity to jointly pioneer new relationships with non-visual arts businesses and organizations in the interest of innovating the development of contemporary art and culture in Vietnam.

San Art invites critically thinking Vietnamese artists to submit proposals of ambitious unrealized projects for co-production.

In Vietnam, there are artwork proposals a plenty, however little access to resource and expertise to make them happen on an independent basis. Thus, exhibitions in Vietnam are not as ambitious or interdisciplinary as they theoretically could be. San Art addresses this situation by teaming up with non-visual art business/organization (eg. fashion; advertising; architecture; science etc) to commission critically thinking Vietnamese artists to produce new artwork of relevant mutual interest. San Art staff will assist the selected artist with research, fabrication options, conceptual development; installation expertise; exhibition venue; co-writing of grant proposals towards production funds and other necessary text for promotion. San Art organizational expertise consists of curatorial, photographic, conservation, installation, audio/visual production and promotion, with active networks locally and abroad. The venue for the realized project could occur at the premises of San Art or at another chosen venue of the collaborating partner (funds permitting). As a consequence of working closely with the team of San Art, each artist will take away a unique experience of studio, gallery and commercial enterprise in one; gaining first hand working knowledge of applying for funding to conceptual critique on development of new work to extension of local knowledge base in terms of fabrication.
