Saigoneer's September Art Picks

After the city's gallery scene took a summer hiatus, Saigoneer is back with our art picks for the month. September was off to a good start with a variety of exhibitions, employing everything from urban landscapes to Anthropocene research, the presence of Vietnamese philosophy in architecture and a hymn to Saigon. Here are the pieces we liked most.
