Hanoi Grapevine’s Finest is an annual event honouring contemporary art in Vietnam, 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 community impacts; thereby encouraging art and cultural development and further promoting and broadening the power of arts and culture on the community.

This year 2024 is the 5th year of Hanoi Grapevine’s Finest, and we are increasingly aware of our responsibility in providing a comprehensive and objective overview of the transformations happening within the Vietnamese art and cultural scene. Throughout five years of careful observations and documentation on the sideline, of joining hands with the community to overcome the challenges of the pandemic, and the sudden loss of the people who laid the foundation for arts and culture here in the past recent years, Hanoi Grapevine is honoured to contribute our voice in archiving and celebrating the efforts and activities that have made a glorious journey for Vietnam’s contemporary art.

To commemorate the 5th anniversary of Hanoi Grapevine’s Finest, we have been organising multiple satellite events for the project in 2024. In addition to the 02 concert nights “Banquet on the Keyboard” in Hanoi and Saigon and 03 screenings of short films by Phạm Ngọc Lân, as well as the crowdfunding event for the republication of the project compilation books from the past 5 years, we hope to continue the exhibition Hanoi Grapevine’s Selection and the writing contest for art enthusiasts – Hanoi Grapevine’s Finest Reviews. In 2024, we would also like to conduct a trend report which will be available in an online format and an in-person event, in addition to a series of interviews and podcasts to look back and look ahead on the course of development of arts and culture with prominent figures in the scene.
