The 10-day Artwriting Workshop features a series of seminars, practical sessions and tutorials, aimed at developing art writers from Vietnam. The programme will take place at Zero Station, no. 12, road 43, Lam Van Ben Binh Thuan ward, District 7, Ho Chi Minh City.

Participants of the workshop, selected through direct nominations from across the country, are young intellectuals who have been actively involved in the local art scene. They are curators, coordinators, writers, directors of art spaces… All of them are fluent in both speaking and writing in English.

The overarching theme of the Workshop is “Translation: Understanding Difference and Distance in Contemporary Art across Asia”. We are using the term “Translation” more as a metaphor than in reference to the practices of translating different languages into each other. We are interested in exploring how artistic practice itself is a form of translation: a means of connecting and trying to understand the many geographic and cultural differences and distances that we find in contemporary societies around the regions.

Contour Biennale 8 departs from the historic grounds of the Great Council, established in Mechelen during the fifteenth century; an emblematic reminder of the court architecture that first sought to address the Low Countries through rational jurisprudence. From the vestiges of this judicial infrastructure, the biennale investigates the field of social justice and its implements as media archaeology, such that justice itself is considered a “medium” that is simultaneously a performative, ethical, and aesthetic operation.

Begun by artists Tuan Mami, Nguyen Phuong Lin and several other artists in 2013, Nha San Collective inherited the spirit of the Nha San Studio as an experimental space for avant-garde art. Their goals are to support young artists, expand the audience for the visual arts, facilitate cultural exchange at home and abroad, and promote creative activities in Vietnam through their exhibitions, public programs, and educational activities. Although they had been relocating, without a specific space of their own, they have moved into Hanoi’s new commercial building, Creative City since August 2015. As part of the building’s incentive to bring in cultural enterprises, their rent has also been waived. Run by volunteers, they gain their operational funds from donations, entrance fees, sales of artwork and related goods, and sponsorships of projects. The group emits a youthful energy focused around artists and has been attracting attention as a venue for generating new culture in Hanoi.

The exhibition is opening doors for 36 young artists from 14 Asian countries to use their art and fulfill their potential. It sheds light on various social issues plaguing Asia today with modern art. Meanwhile, the five day international exchange workshop gives participants a chance to share a wide spectrum of problems in Asia. Key figures in the art world including artists, curators, and critics interact with one another to build a consensus at the workshop and offer new values and discourse that the Korean art world must aim for. Jeonbuk Museum of Art expects the international exhibition and the workshop to become a hub of modern art in Asia. Also, the event is a special exhibition worth noting as a specialization strategy for stimulating local art and public or national art galleries.
