Cultural art series. Private art gallery tour and discussion (with Thanh Uy art) – FULL
April 24 @ 2:30 PM - 5:30 PM200,000VND
As of 31 March this tour is now full. Please RSVP for the waiting list. we will have 3 weeks to go so if anyone’s schedule changes we can fill their space, also we can prioritise those on the waiting list for the next time we run this tour
We are delighted to invite a small group of FVH members to visit a hidden art gallery which is very unassuming in the Cau Dien area of Hanoi.
The owner is a private art collector, Duc, and his gallery is the culmination of 10 passionate years amassing a wonderful collection of original artwork prints. Spread over 5 floors, each room is dedicated to a particular genre of print art. From Dong Ho and Hang Trong traditional folk paintings to propaganda art posters, modern day mono prints and woodcuts …. beautifully curated and lit, in a warm cozy space.
We don’t want to post lots of photos with this calendar entry in order to keep it a surprise as entering each room is like stepping into an aladdins cave. Duc and his gallery assistant Ngoc Anh (former student at the Fine Arts University) will lead us round and explain about: the different types of print art on display (traditional and modern), the techniques used, some of the artists who have work featured, some of the stories behind the works, how the collection was put together …..
We end the tour on the top floor with some wine and a chance to chat more with Duc.
The tour starts 2.30pm – meet from 2.15pm on the ground floor gallery cafe with courtyard.
We are allocating 3 hrs as there is a lot to see and talk about. and please join us for a glass of wine at the end.
200,000 VND pp (includes wine. Drinks bought the cafe are a personal cost)
Max 10 pax
