Congratulations to Hanoi artist Vu Kim Thu,
who is the first Vietnamese artist to be selected for the prestigious Bellagio Center Residency in Italy, sponsored by the Rockefeller Foundation!
The Rockefeller Foundation Bellagio Center, whose mission is to “promote the well-being of humanity” is unique in that it gathers scholars, artists, thought leaders, policymakers and practitioners in one beautiful place, creating opportunities for meetings, connections and inspiration that would otherwise not likely occur.
We are delighted that Thu has agreed to keep a diary on Grapevine of her experiences during her residency at the Bellagio Center.
She arrived yesterday and you can her read her first thoughts and see a few initial pictures of the beautiful location.
And to all artists working in any media, scholars and practitioners – a new round of selections has opened.
More information and application forms will be available soon here on Grapevine. Watch out for it, and take a chance – maybe you will be the next one to visit Italy.
