An exhibition of visual artworks, ‘From Melbourne to Ho Chi Minh City: Same – Same’, is displaying the talents of emerging artists from Australia and Vietnam.
The exhibition, on view at the HCM City Fine Arts University from May 10-20, was organized by the Australian Consulate-General and the city of Melbourne.
The artworks illustrate a broad range of approaches made by the artists, who tackle different issues by using similar concepts and aesthetic methods to transcend cultural and geographic boundaries.
The program is an initiative of Melbourne in cooperation with the Australian Consulate-General in HCM City.
It supports young emerging visual artists living and working in HCM City. Since 2005, grants have been awarded to 31 artists, according to a press release from the Australian Consulate in HCM City.
The exhibition is held at 5 Phan Dang Luu Street in HCM City's Binh Thanh District.
