This exhibition introduces the practices of four women who represent a cross section of female artists active in Vietnam. Curiously, the majority of serious contemporary art galleries in Vietnam are run by women, yet there are scant exhibitions featuring work by female artists. While certainly in this day and age it is common knowledge that women do indeed hold up half the sky, this exhibition is a small attempt to clear away some of the clouds obscuring the female half. That these artists share a common gender is relevant primarily to underscore the lack of serious exhibitions featuring women artists. The four artists, in fact, possess diverse practices, disparate concerns, aesthetics and sensibilities. Communicated through drawing, sculpture, video and animation, the works range from the personal and poetic to the detached and visceral.
