A Space for Artists’ Creations
Located in Thao Dien ward, district 2, Ho Chi Minh City, the Factory Contemporary Arts Centre is the first of its type in Vietnam, where many artists can get motivated and assisted with their art.
Ho Chi Minh City has few arts centres, so the establishment of the Factory Contemporary Arts Centre supports the development of contemporary arts in Vietnam and gives a chance for discovery, work and exchange between artists and audiences.
Many large exhibitions and contemporary arts projects have been organised at the centre which impressed visitors. At the first exhibition, TechNoPhobe, by artists in Ho Chi Minh City, visitors were surprised by modern technology artworks, such as 3D printing and video holograms, audience-activated sound installations, smart phone apps, motion sensing video and animation.
Relating to installation arts, exhibitions like “Nang bang phang” (Flat sunlight) by Lena Bui or “Lac chon” (Dislocated) of Bui Cong Khanh showcased at the centre also brought new and unique viewpoints about contemporary arts’ values.
