From the organizer:

Self-portraiture has a long and distinguished history throughout human civilization, and involves those practiced in self-expression providing their views on themselves, as a metaphor for the cultures and societies in which they live. The Dogma Prize celebrates this intellectual artistic endeavor as well as the courage to overcome the struggle between the private, introverted self and the desire to overtly portray the artist’s true self-identity.

There is always the question of an artist’s identity and his artwork, especially in self-portraiture. Because in this global age, while Vietnam as a nation and Vietnamese artists as a generation present themselves, in their truths also lies complexities and confusions.

What lies beneath the artists’ effort to portray their own identities?

The purpose of the Dogma Prize 2017 is to encourage and promote Vietnamese artists, whether resident in Vietnam or overseas, through a focus on Self-portraiture, of all disciplines.

The event is co-ordinated by independent researcher Do Tuong Linh and will take place at the Six Space art space.
