From the organizer:
Come to the talk, illustration exhibition and auction of the two Vietnamese epic poems: “The tale of Kieu” and “The tale of Luc Van Tien”. At the exhibition opening, artist Thanh Chuong and researcher Phan Cam Thuong will share with the audience the creative process of illustrating “The tale of Kieu” (published by Dong A). Illustrating a masterpiece is a challenge as well as an exciting experience that the artists, whose passions bring colors to the literature piece, have never had before.
During exhibition time, the organizers will start auctioning for all the illustrations exhibited. Previously, 7 special copies of “The tale of Kieu” with the illustrators’ signatures were auctioned online, gathering interest of many readers. Those who are interested can bid directly at the gallery, via phone, or via the internet. The auction will last throughout the exhibition.
Illustration exhibition and auction will take place from 02 Dec to 31 Dec 2017.
