From Nhasan Collective:
Come to the art talk with Tuan Mami on his research on performative art forms in South East Asia.
By studying highly influential artists in the area such as: Truong Tan, Tran Luong, Jun Nguyen – Hatshushiba, Rich Streimatter Tran, Tang Da Wu, Amanda Heng, Melati Suryodarrmo, Iwan Wijono, Manit Sriwanichpoo and Rirkrit Tiravanija – who have been playing an important role in the development of contemporary art in South East Asia, Tuan Mami’s speech will analyze the formation, the development as well as the link between Vietnamese contemporary art and other countries in the area by giving a look at performantive art forms. By doing so, the speech will focus on highlighting the role and the meaning of contemporary art in Vietnam’s context.
Moreover, Tuan Mami will also share and be willing to have open debate about other performance art and contemporary art issues like: the lack of society recognition, artists’ difficulties and advantages, social and cultural relations in order to have an open, active and incisive art environment in the context of globalization nowadays.

Nhà Sàn COLLECTIVE is not a museum, a gallery or an international culture institute where completed work are presented by established artists. Just like Nhà Sàn Studio before, it is a working studio to nurture where artists can create, collaborate, be given advices, critiques, and have chances to meet with international artists, curators. Works that are presented at open studio every month could be finished or not, but the process of developing idea and working to improve the quality of the art work for local artists is what Nhà Sàn COLLECTIVE focus on.
Nhà Sàn COLLECTIVE will have “Open Studio” every last Saturday of each month to show the artist’s process of working.
If you are interest and curious about experimental art, and want to have conversation with the working artists, please visit
