  • ‘Listen to the River’

    ‘Listen to the River’

    8pm, 21 & 22 March

    ‘Listen to the River’ is the title of an art exhibition by Truc Chi Art, founded by Vietnamese artist Phan Hai Bang and his young associates, who are students at the Hue College of Fine Arts. The exhibition presents different visual art mediums, including Truc Chi art, installation, light, sound, and video. Through the exhibition, Bang aims to present new accomplishments based on the idea of acculturation. This is how traditional values should be treated in regard to creating new values. The core concept is that paper doesn’t have to just be used as a material on which art is made. Instead, paper can be a standalone artwork, and papermaking can also be a standalone kind of art.

    Bang has worked as a lecturer at the Hue College of Fine Arts since 1996 and has participated in a wide range of group exhibitions and solo exhibitions. His latest project is ‘Vietnam Truc Chi Art’, which leverages the elite in traditional papermaking methods to create a new form of art, a new cultural value for the region.
