KVT – Not a reviewer, not a critic, “Kiếm Văn Tìm” is an interested, impartial and informed observer and connoisseur of the Hanoi art scene who offers highly opinionated remarks and is part of the long and venerable tradition of anonymous correspondents.
UYEN LY is a freelance journalist working on arts, culture and post war issues. She used to work for Tuoi Tre – the top newspaper in Vietnam. After Tuoi Tre, she became chief editor of international news for Vietnamnet – the first online news website in Vietnam. Then she decided to freelance so that she could work on any subject she likes. Every time she goes to an interesting art event, she is excited to share her feeling and thoughts with other people.
