Hanoi-Exhibition: Those who do not move, do not notice their chains
Opening (online launching): Mar 5
Exhibition: Mar 6 – Apr 12
8C, 76 To Ngọc Van Street
The idea of this exhibition is built upon Rosa’s inspiration and her revolutionary theory, to keep the link between people whose are always trying to contribute their life for humanity and whose always act to make society be better.
This special showcase brings 5 thoughtful, sensitive, revolutionary, powerful female voices, who have been contributed greatly to our society and our culture by their arts and activities.
The 5 artists come from different back-grounds, different societies, and different generations. They will be creating a dialogue to discover different aspects of our lives and constantly ‘Reform’ to follow the changes of life. To ‘Reform’ is to question what our history is presenting about, to question to those powers which exist in our society through politics, social hierarchies, classes, and to search for the better society or suitable environments.
