* Nha San 20+
2018 December is the 20th anniversary of Nha San Collective, the first non-profit art space in Vietnam.
Exhibition 462 ĐƯỜNG BƯỞI is one of the multiple activities in this anniversary program.
462 Đường Bưởi. Ngõ 6 Vĩnh Phúc. 657 Hoàng Hoa Thám. These are addresses—‘address,’ by definition, meaning a collection of descriptive information that locates a house, a structure or an expanse of land. Information that identifies. Might this identified position be scattered across multiple addresses or might it be an incompleteness to somehow be precisely pinpointed? Like Nhà Sàn, for instance? Could it be a schizophrenic place, viewed from within and outside? Could it be a generous place that accepts multiple namings, seemingly incomplete when judged by certain standards or expectations? Or could it simply be a place that has lived long enough? These different addresses, serving as a collection of clues, along with the searches and approaches they contain are deeply contingent on negotiations between various positions—positions occupied by art practitioners such as artists and curators, as well as positions of the artworks themselves, viewed spatially and temporally from plural vantage points.
The exhibition opens at 6pm with Banana Phone Ensemble recreating Nguyễn Văn Cường’s music, work by Nguyễn Minh Phước and Sơn X’s show.
