Future of Tradition* would like to invite you to attend a talk with Visual Artist Nguyen Huy An: “An area familiar yet strange”. This talk is the 5th event in the series of event of the project, to follow the schedule of events, please click here.

In previous talk, we have in turn invited you to dialogue with Artists, Musician and Curator. In this 5th event, Future of Tradition opens up a conversation with Visual Artist Nguyen Huy An. Artist Huy An has experimented on many mediums such as paintings, installations and especially performances. Among them, there are many works that have a strong connection with indigenous culture, and resonate and influence in the community of contemporary art practice in Vietnam.

“An area familiar yet strange” – which is that area? How about is the “familiar” and “strange” through his point of view? And how about the artist’s direction? Through reference to his personal practices, Artist Nguyen Huy An will clarify these questions.

This event will be conducted only in Vietnamese
