“SKYLINES WITH FLYING PEOPLE 3”
“Skylines With Flying People 3” (hereafter SKYLINES 3) is an interdisciplinary art project set out to portray the landscape of contemporary Việt Nam through the lens of local artists who were born and have grown up in the period of Đổi Mới (the economic reform policy leading to Việt Nam’s ‘socialist-led market economy’).
Following the success of SKYLINES 1 (2010, London) and SKYLINES 2 (2012, Hà Nội), SKYLINES 3 was initiated in 2014 and takes as its starting point notions of ‘journeying’ and ‘border’. 14 artists, 6 curators, numerous scholars and various museums, institutes and education organisations are being brought together to collaborate. 11 sub-projects dealing with Việt Nam’s complicated history, fragmented culture and issues such as migration, exploitation of humans and nature, urbanisation and gender, have been realised across the country. Between October 2016 and January 2017, 6 solo, duo and group exhibitions will take place consecutively.
KNOWLEDGE EXCHANGE – a series of public seminars aiming to broaden the parameters of artistic practices by extending them to and having exchanges with the social and human sciences, is taking place between March and December 2016. Joining in this series are SKYLINE 3’s participating artists as well as scholars in the fields of history, literature, anthropology, archaeology and sociology from Vietnam, Hong Kong, Denmark, Germany and the US.
All exhibitions and seminars are being held in Hà Nội, Việt Nam at various venues.
SKYLINES 3 is inaugurated by Nhà Sàn Collective, a non-profit artist-run art space based in Hà Nội promoting contemporary and experimental creative practices.
Communication partner: Hanoi Grapevine
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 advice, 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 focuses on.
If you are interested and curious about experimental art, and want to have conversation with the working artists, please visit
