From the organizer:
A banana was bought for $ 120,000 (nearly 3 billion) causing a stir in the last month of 2019. It was a real banana (it even was eaten by a person) stuck on the wall with a gray sticky tape. It is also the work of Italian sculptor Maurizio Cattelan, 59 years old, named “Comedian”. And then a French collector negotiated to buy the work for $120,000.
Once again, general public was bewildered by art. The journalists Mara Siegler and Natalie O’Neil of the New York Post, commented on the event “there is something rotten in the art world”.
This is also the topic of this week’s Fine Arts Coffee with one of today’s outstanding young artists, Thai Nhat Minh sculptor. Along with the introduction of Thai Nhat Minh’s works under the theme of “What is Art looking for?”. This talk also opened a forum for exchanging fine arts in general and contemporary Vietnamese sculpture in particular.
