|The exhibition attracts many visitors
Speaking at the opening ceremony, Deputy Minister of Culture, Sports and Tourism Ta Quang Dong emphasised that this is a nationwide exhibition, aiming to summarise and evaluate the process of creative activities. The exhibition is an opportunity to announce outstanding artworks of the Vietnamese art world over the past five years (2016-2020) and recognise the compositional achievements of Vietnamese artists and sculptors in the career of construction and development of an advanced Vietnamese culture imbued with national identity.
This is also an opportunity for a large number of art lovers to approach and enjoy new art works, rich in content and diverse in forms, contributing to the development of the Vietnamese art market, helping the organisations and individuals accessing works with high artistic value.
In the six months since the event’s launch, the organising board received 3,571 works of 1,382 authors from 58 provinces and cities. The arts council selected 497 works by 483 authors to showcase at the exhibition.
The works manifest labour activities, the national building and safeguarding cause, and issues of the contemporary life in various forms such as painting, graphics, sculpture, installation art, and performing arts.
Notably, this year, the exhibition has expanded its audience; in addition to domestic artists, it has also seen the participation of Vietnamese artists living and working abroad.
The exhibition is taking place until December 10.
On this occasion, the organising board presented 29 excellent works, including six second prizes, 11 third prizes and 12 consolation prizes.
After the event concludes in Hanoi, the exhibition will be on display at the Ho Chi Minh City Fine Arts Museum from December 22 to 29.
