HCMC – An exhibition titled “The Art of The Journey” will be opened at the Pan Pacific Hanoi today, April 11, introducing 37 artworks by more than 20 of Vietnam’s most respected and beloved artists.

The pieces are selected from a photo book of the same name, which comprises 170 art pieces from established and emerging artists in the Asia-Pacific region.

Highlights of the exhibition include art pieces by the late Nguyen Tu Nghiem, one of Vietnam’s pioneer and most influential artists; Dang Xuan Hoa, who is regarded as one of the most important artists of the late 20th century; and Nguyen Trung, who is known as the “father of Vietnamese abstract art”.

The exhibition will also feature works by “horse painter” Le Tri Dung and those created by Dinh Quan and Quach Dong Phuong that have been exhibited around the world. These artworks symbolize the backbone of Vietnamese contemporary art and have been an indispensable part of the local heritage.

The opening ceremony of “The Art of The Journey”, which will start at 6 p.m., will be attended by some of the artists including Dang Xuan Hoa, Le Quang Hoa, Le Tri Dung and Quach Dong Phuong.

The organizer will be holding a charity auction with all proceeds going towards KOTO, a local social enterprise which trains disadvantaged and at-risk youths for a career in hospitality.
