Program “Materialize” of The Factory Contemporary Arts Centre calls for applications
Deadline: 08 May 2017
From the organizer:
Are you a Vietnamese artist with artwork you have not had the opportunity to exhibit in Vietnam?
The Factory Contemporary Arts Centre is looking for YOU!
‘Materialize’ is a program that aims to provide exhibition opportunities for Vietnamese artists who have had little chance to create exhibitions of their art. Artists will be challenged to extend their experimentation with concept and media beyond their training and general assumptions about art. This program is open for application to artists born and currently living in Vietnam and over the age of 25. Artists must submit specific information for consideration, which will be assessed by an appointed jury.
In 2017, there will be 3 opportunities for 3 artists to do their own solo show in a particular designated space of The Factory. Each exhibition will be on view for 6-8 weeks.
The Factory Contemporary Arts Centre is pleased to have the support of Indochina Arts Partnership (IAP) for this initiative. ‘By joining ‘Materialize’, Indochina Arts Partnership commits its support to the development of emerging artists in Vietnam and encourages young talents to participate in art and creative projects.’
Applications are due on 8 May!
