Introducing Modern and Contemporary Vietnamese Art

Why We Recommend it

Offering a curious primer on 20th and 21st century Vietnamese art, this exhibit features works by contemporary artist Streitmatter-Tran in the context of his country’s art history.


An exhibition of contemporary and modern Vietnamese art that tracks the flow of artists and ideas between Vietnam and the West over the last century, new works by the Ho Chi Minh City-based contemporary artist R. Streitmatter-Tran will be displayed alongside modern pieces by artists central to the story of modern Vietnamese Art from the pre and post-war era.

Working across a range of mediums including watercolour on silk, unfired clay, sound, iron and cake, Streitmatter-Tran initiates dialogue that offers new perspectives on historically significant work from Vietnam’s first generation of modern artists.
