Pick up at your hotel, and then get cozy at a café while being given an introduction to modern Vietnamese history. The first stop on the tour is a private collection that houses colonial era artworks. Using visual aids, clients are invited to see how European styles have been fused with traditional Vietnamese materials and techniques to give birth to modern Vietnamese art. Next, we will wander a short distance to a special Private Gallery, a space connected to the largest private collection of propaganda art in Vietnam.
Here we will learn about how important propaganda was produced and distributed during and after the war and how it was influenced by China and Russia. Continue to Ho Chi Minh City Fine Arts Museum, an impressive example of Sino-French architecture, where you will look at the work of wartime artists. The last stop is one of the city leading contemporary art galleries which houses changing exhibitions of works by Vietnamese and international artists. You will learn how these spaces are nurturing experimentation and creating opportunities for emerging artists. Here the future of Vietnamese art and the next generation of Vietnamese artists are discussed in an international context. Return to your hotel.
