“Back-to-Back: a series of discursive encounters” is an art history and theory programme initiated by Sàn Art in 2018. Modeled after the format of university seminars, Back-to-Back’s bi-weekly sessions span 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 canonical Western models. Although primarily aimed at art practitioners (curators, artists, researchers, critics, etc.), Back-to-Back welcomes participants of any discipline who have a keen interest in contemporary visual culture.

Stay tuned for Back-to-Back 2019!
