From Heritage Space:
Heritage Space proudly presents ‘IS IT NECESSARY TO HAVE A NAME…’ – an anonymous art exhibition showcasing the works by an artist group that belongs to the 2nd generation of Vietnamese Contemporary arts.
Anonymous, which was no peculiar to the morphology and the operational structure of cultural operating of the Orient in general and the Vietnamese in particular, seems to be far in the past for so long. However, ‘anonymous’ seems to be forgotten in the present society, where the identity, personality and cognomen are endorsed, each individual who is living either in megacities or in far dark and hidden corners also has the opportunity to speak up and express to the world their presence by different means, choices, based on linear or non-linear platforms.
An exhibition with diverse structures using a variety of media from classic creative disciplines to alternative, customized and independent forms, ‘IS IT NECESSARY TO HAVE A NAME’ presents ways of perceiving the world in different states of reflection and questioning with the anonymity of the artworks’ authors. Not deliberately hiding their identity, or simulating the traditional ‘anonymous’ spirit, the artists voluntarily renounces their names under the titles as a way to challenge themselves, to let the creativity identify and position itself to audience. Let the identity have the opportunity to be re-established by visual presence and artistic expression system.
Heritage Space is a combination of an art gallery, a library, a concert hall, co-working office, residency space, artist studios and some open-stages, which has the capacity to host art exhibitions, music events, educational programs, multi-creative forms, artist-in-residency programs and others. Run by a group of curators, artists, researchers, musicians and architects, Heritage Space’s mission is to become a HUB for individuals and groups working on multi-disciplines from both inside and outside of the country to support and develop the creative industries in Vietnam.
