From the organizer:

This event is in Vietnamese only

Future of Tradition* would like to invite you to attend a talk with Curator/Artist Tran Luong: “On creativity, Tradition plays the role of SPIRIT instead of just being MATERIAL!”. This talk is the 4th event in the series of event of the project, to follow the schedule of events, please check here.

In indigenous art practices, the use of “traditional materials” is very common. However, the misconception and use of tradition only as a material in art creation, or in any cultural activity, will cause certain gaps.

What are those gaps? Why on the creative path, Tradition is not only Material, but also plays the role of Spirit? And what is “Traditional Spirit” in artworks? We would love to invite you to listen and discuss with Tran Luong, one of the most influential Curator/Artist in the Vietnamese contemporary art community.

* “Future of Tradition” is a 4-month project to raise the topic about the traditional art and the application of traditional art in contemporary art practices.
