Hanoi Grapevine’s Finest 2023 – 2024 Honouring Ceremony

06 pm – 09 pm, Fri 17 May 2024
Villa no.49 Trần Hưng Đạo, quận Hoàn Kiếm, Hà Nội
** Invitation only

From the organizer:

Hanoi Grapevine’s Finest is an annual event honouring contemporary art in Vietnam, hosted and selected by Hanoi Grapevine and the community of audiences. The event aims to recognise individuals, organisations, projects, activities in the field of creative arts and artists aged 35 or under that have an impact on the community, thereby further encourages and radiate the power of arts and culture.

2024 marks the fifth edition of Hanoi Grapevine’s Finest. 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.

Hanoi Grapevine’s Finest 2023 – 2024 is divided into two major categories: Honouring and Recognition. In the honouring category, the community directly votes and shares their thoughts and comments on artists and projects of their interest.
