No & Meaning Exhibition

Manzi Art Space
Manzi and Vietnam Art Gallery will be co-hosting the No & Meaning exhibition by prominent contemporary Vietnamese visual artist Nguyen Minh Thanh from Dec. 9.
The exhibition consists of 20 paintings incorporating mainly Chinese ink and watercolour on traditional Vietnamese do paper, with Buddhist themes on detachment and escape.
Thanh was one of the first Vietnamese avant-garde artists to experiment with less traditional methods of art-making, and his melancholy style paintings have been exhibited nationally and internationally in Japan, Australia and Switzerland. However, this particular exhibition is the first from Thanh in five years, and explores his new approach to painting where he ignores concepts, plans and idealism.
Manzi Art Space is located at 14 Phan Huy Ich, Ba Dinh, Hanoi. Entrance is free
