Hanoi has a vibrant and profound cultural life, with all its unique characteristics shaped by the vicissitudes of history. Not only portrayed in countless works of homegrown artists, it is also a significant source of inspiration for international artists.
“To photograph is to expose your inner self”; perhaps Hanoi is just a metaphor to express the inner feelings of the artists. The works on display are photographs spanning many years, documenting Hanoi at different historical periods. Hanoi in the exhibition appears in many shapes and forms, distinguished by the personal introspections of each artist.
Visitors to the exhibition may discover a familiar Hanoi or a strange land that bears endless resemblances.
The exhibition will last from April 21 to June 3, 2023 at 22 Hàng Buồm Culture and Arts Center. Besides, two talk shows on April 22 and 23 with the participation of artists and experts will help the public have a closer look at the works of the exhibition as well as a Hanoi in photography.
