BackArts & Culture » Music & Art » Chúng Ta Đang Nghịch Gì: Exhibition Explores How the Young Generation Perceives Life

“Chúng ta đang nghịch gì?, or “What are we tricking?,” a multimedia exhibition currently showcasing at the Vincom Center for Contemporary Art (VCCA), presents 125 different artworks by over 100 artists from all over the country.

Based on the famous self-help book What Are You Doing With Your Life? by Jiddu Krishnamurti, the exhibition portrays each artist's perspective on philosophy and life, as well as highlighting contemporary issues relevant to young people today. The exhibition is organized by VCCA in collaboration with the Vietnam Fine Arts Association’s Young Artists Association, reports VnExpress.

Visitors can admire and appreciate the various nuances of emotion and expression through every piece of art. Many of them consist of ordinary, everyday color schemes, illustrating life at its most candid. Some examples are 'Potted Plants' by Triệu Phương and 'In Hàng Trống Garden' by Hoài Giang and Nguyễn Trang.

Other works, such as 'Decay' by Vũ Tuấn Việt, depict the deep concerns of young people. On the other hand, 'The Mind of Ten Thousand Beings' by Lại Minh Huyền and 'The Space Between Us' by Lê Yến Nhi represent many conceptual dimensions. 

“Chúng ta đang nghịch gì?” is a creative artistic response: employing traditional art forms such as painting, sculpture, and photography, as well as modern multimedia art such as graphic design and videography.

The exhibition is open and free to enter until July 25 at the Vincom Center for Contemporary Art, B1-R3 Vincom Mega Mall Royal City, 72 Nguyễn Trãi Street, Thanh Xuân District, Hanoi.
