Art Vietnam Salon Gallery (in conjunction with the Japan Foundation – Asia Centre) is honored to announce the upcoming exhibition “Gang of Five, Chancing Modern” to be held at the Vietnam Film Studio, No. 4 Thuy Khue Street, Hanoi from October 21 – November 19, 2017. Opening reception 6pm, 21 October.
The Gang of Five, members Hong Viet Dung, Ha Tri Hieu, Dang Xuan Hoa, Tran Luong and Pham Quang Vinh hold an esteemed position in the history of fine art in Vietnam’s post-Doi Moi (Reform) era. They emerged in the early 80’s as Vietnam was struggling to rebuild after decades of war. Five male artists bound by friendship and a passion to express themselves freely without constraint, with a hope for the future that in the past was inconceivable, they pursued their dreams and consequentially inspired others to follow.
