Status of San Art

Sàn Art is a non-profit organization established with the support of the ‘Vietnam Foundation for the Arts’ (VNFA). 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, we are constantly seeking external funding from abroad to run its programs. In addition to applying for international grants for relevant exhibitions and projects, Sàn Art seeks generous donation by individuals, business corporations and sale of work by artists it collaborates to assist ongoing infrastructural and programming costs – WE NEED YOU!

Most of the works presented by Sàn Art is available for sale, and all proceedings go towards artist and community in our mission as non-profit in a country with no financial support for contemporary art.

For further information on the artworks, or how you might support Sàn Art, please contact via the phone number or email below. Thank you!
