Evaluation from Hanoi Grapevine: Sàn Art, founded in 2007 in Ho Chi Minh City (HCMC) as an artist-initiated, non-profit art platform, has since become a leading art organization dedicated to nurturing and challenging common modes of viewing and thinking about visual art through exhibition, critical discourse, educational initiatives and residency programs. Past projects include Sàn Art Laboratory (2012-2015), an art residency program, and Conscious Realities (2013-2016), a series of events and publications on the Global South. In 2018, Sàn Art developed Uncommon Pursuits—a seminar-workshop for emerging Southeast Asian curators and opened a new gallery in downtown HCMC with a focus on intergenerational dialogues between modern and contemporary art.
