Intersection Vietnam: New Works from North & South

By Kelvin Chuah

Exhibition Review: When was the last time contemporary Vietnamese Art was featured in its entirety in Kuala Lumpur? I must confess that I am no expert in Vietnamese contemporary art. In a way, I was looking forward to what this exhibition had to offer, in terms of contemporary practice. Man, was I blown away.

Brand New 2009: Thailand’s new set of creative Younglings

It has come to a point where I’m not sure if this exhibition is recognised solely as a platform for promoting the works of new Thai artists or that there’s an expectation that these artists would soon join the ranks of their predecessors to become the hot new thing in Thailand’s contemporary art scene. After all, the exhibtion is known to be a launch pad for the career of some of Thailand’s most well-known contemporary artists (Arin Roongjang, Porntaweesak Rimsakul, Yuree Kensakoo etc.). Reflecting on this, I reckon it does work both ways. And actually… why waste time doubting it anyway? It’s a good art project when you get right down to it.

“The ancients built Valdrada on the shores of a lake, with houses all verandas one above the other, and high streets whose railed parapets look out over the water. Thus the traveler, arriving, sees two cities: one erect above the lake, and the other reflected, upside down…” (from Invisible Cities by Italo Calvino)
