From Hanoi Grapevine:

Hanoi Grapevine’s Finest is an annual event honouring contemporary art in Vietnam, and is organised and selected by Hanoi Grapevine and the art audience. The event aims to honour individuals, organisations, creative arts projects, activities and artists aged 35 and under who have made an impact on the community in order to further contribute to the encouragement and expansion of arts & culture.

After four years of accompanying contemporary art events & activities nationwide, Hanoi Grapevine’s Finest is no longer a foreign name among those who love and practise arts. Once again, Hanoi Grapevine’s Finest 2023 looks forward to recognising the outstanding contributions of individuals and organisations in the field of culture and art during 2022-2023.

In an effort to give the most comprehensive and objective view, Hanoi Grapevine’s Finest always offers different formats in each edition. This year, Hanoi Grapevine’s Finest 2023 is divided into two major categories: Honouring and Recognition.

Honouring categories

Finest Projects – Meaningful art projects of the year selected by Hanoi Grapevine and voted for by the community
Finest Artists – Active artists aged 35 and under selected by Hanoi Grapevine and voted for by the community
Finest Reviews – Best reviews of art projects/events of the year selected by Hanoi Grapevine and voted for by the community

Recognition categories

Active Organisers – Active independent creative arts spaces and organisers
New Organisers – New creative art spaces and organisers
Active Producers/Curators – Active curators and producers

In particular, in the Honouring category, the community will directly vote, share comments and thoughts about the artists and projects they enjoy and are interested in.

In addition to Hanoi Grapevine’s Finest Honouring Ceremony, we are proud to present The Grapevine Selection, which was initiated by Hanoi Grapevine’s founder – artist Brian Ring exactly 10 years ago in 2013. The exhibition series The Grapevine Selection is an initiative within Hanoi Grapevine’s mission plan, which is to promote Vietnam’s arts and culture at home and abroad. With this mission, over the past decade, Hanoi Grapevine has become a trusted source of archive with a neutral role in observing and following art and cultural events taking place across the country, a prominent data source and living library that contributes to the development of the art market as well as a platform for the creative industries in Vietnam.

The event is pleased to have the support and companionship of the Temple of Literature, British Council, Audi Vietnam, Art Republik Vietnam, Chau & Co Gallery, Phố Bên Đồi, Tired City, Omega+, Printopia and iDesign.
