About the exhibition:
‘BLUE project’ exhibition will present works made by 8 international and Vietnamese as the results of 07 weeks for exchange and working during MAP, in various art forms: installation, concept, performance, video, research, craft, documentation. It is an explanation of incomplete interim trials, transformed into physical and non-physical visual structures in an irrational social space and context. Using what’s missing to talk about the gaps itself, using the color blue to tell what’s not blue, using the paradox to tell the paradox, those are the purposes of MAP 2020.
