    ‘Gang of Five Chancing Modern’ is an art project surveying the more than 30 years of work of of five Hanoian artists: Hong Viet Dung, Ha Tri Hieu, Dang Xuan Hoa, Tran Luong and Pham Quang Vinh.

    Established in 1983 upon their graduation under the name Gang of Five, they grew and developed their work amid significant socio-historical changes during the post-‘doi moi’ (reform) period in Vietnam. The exhibition presents a selection of paintings from the 1990s to the 2000s that are considered to signify their artistic characteristics. At the same time, a section of the display is dedicated to archival materials (small drawings and sketches, notes, photographs, etc.), to provide a contextual background on the group, through which the public can explore the arts scene of the time.
