This is a sign there is a strong development of sculptures in the country, which is an area of art which has been neglected for a long time.
The exhibition features more than 120 offerings made by 100 artists around the country. Pieces are made from diverse materials such as iron, steel, synthetics, ceramics and bronze, mixed media, oil on canvas, lacquer and paper.
In response to the country’s sovereignty over the Truong Sa and Hoang Sa Archipelagos, many works express the patriotism of artists with offerings such as Hai doi truong sa made of oil on canvas and paper by Nguyen Quang Vinh, Vietnam’s Navigation Army made of ceramics by Nguyen Thanh Cong and Truong Sa’s Eyes which is made of oil on canvas by Phan Oanh.
The organizers highlighted the four best artworks of Bat made of synthetics by Tran Viet Hung, Ky uc ve nguon (Memory of coming back home) made of metal by Phan Van Thang, Giu lay me thien nhien (Protecting mother of nature) made of synthetics by Nguyen Hong Duong and Con loc bien Dong (Whirlwind on the East Sea) made of iron by Tran Mai Quoc Khanh.
The exhibition runs until August 15 at the museum, 97A Pho Duc Chinh Street in HCMC’s District 1.
