About project: Solo Marathon is an annual art residency program with the aim to support young artists aged 20-35 to practice contemporary art in all forms and materials and share with the public through an open studio and talks. The project aims at reconsidering and responding to environmental/cultural/social changes and gives priority to multidisciplinary projects and projects that have the collaboration between artists and other voices such as scientists, researchers, artisans, etc.

The 2022 edition of Solo Marathon had several adjustments and changes compared to 2019 and 2020 versions. Instead of a one-month residency at Á Space, selected artists had 3 months of working at Á Space to develop a proposal for a solo exhibition, with a grant of up to 30,000,000VND for production and exhibition-making fund, technical and professional support from Á Space’s team and advisors, access to all equipment, facilities as well as all Á’s spaces including artist-in-residence space, library, and working studios at Á. In addition, selected artists also received professional companionship from a guest curator who is involved in the development and critique of ideas as well as provides support according to the artist’s needs in organising the open studios, professional activities and personal exhibitions of the artist. Instead of going through a “call to applications”, the artists of the 2022 edition are selected with a direct invitation from Á Space based on the trust in the potential of the project that the artist is working on, and the level of technical & financial assistance needed in relation to the current capabilities of Á Space.
