HCMC – Artist Huong Ngo will open an exhibition about women at The Factory Contemporary Arts Centre in District 2, HCMC in May.

In the exhibition “Lost from View”, Huong Ngo excavates the idea, role, and perception of women and how history remembers and values their contribution and influence.

The artist is especially inspired by the life of national hero Nguyen Thi Minh Khai for her strength, tenacity, resilience and bravery during the Vietnam’s anti-colonialism movement in the 1930s.

She uses archival documents, literature and photography to depict not only this prominent figure but also the lives of other women during this revolutionary period.

Through “Lost from View”, Huong Ngo also aims to reveal how social perceptions of sexuality, intelligence and beauty have been influenced by stereotypical understandings of gender, race and power.
