The second run will add many new works by Vietnam Arts University’s Faculty of Arts students. Inspired and learned from the folk art-line that thrived from the same street, the displayed collection contains reflections on heritage values in modern life.
Different from the traditional paper, these paintings will be done on more contemporary materials, lacquer, and silk. Coming to the exhibition space, viewers can have the chance to admire the fusion beauty of new and old versions of arts standing side by side. There are traditional Hang Trong Tet paintings such as “Tu Binh”, “To Nu”, “Ca Chep Vuot Vu Mon”, etc. And for recreational works, some of the names can be called “Roi ve ky uc”, “Trong”, and “Trong vuon hoa Hang Trong”.
The exhibition is held at Nam Huong Pavillon, 75 Hang Trong, Hanoi till March 31st, from 9 am to 4 pm daily.
