OUR MISSION
Nhà Sàn Collective’s mission is to build a stable structure for contemporary art to grow in Vietnam. Through exhibitions, projects, education and exchange, we cultivate, support and challenge artists, creating room for new forms of expression and dialogue to thrive in Vietnam.


We work towards our mission by:
-Exhibition: Supporting local  young and emerging artists
We engage and nurture artists by organizing monthly exhibitions, volunteer programs, workshops and through providing mentorship opportunities

-Education: Expanding audiences for visual arts
Our programming includes open studios, artist talks, and film screenings to foster dialogue between audiences and artists. We will open courses on understanding and practising contemporary art in the near future.

-Exchange: Domestic and international exchange.  Nha San Collective builds from Nha San Studio’s rich history of domestic and international art exchange. We organize solo and collaborative exhibitions, workshops, and seminars, providing  opportunities for sharing experiences, knowledge, and encouraging artistic practice between artists in many different social, economic and geo-political contexts.

 

 
HISTORY

Nhà Sàn Studio (NSS) was founded in 1998 by artists Nguyen Manh Duc and Tran Luong. It was the first and is, to date, the longest running non-profit experimental art space in Vietnam. The studio nurtured several generations of the most imaginative and daring contemporary artists in the country.   

The studio, housed in Nguyen’s family home, is a Muong ethnic minority house on stilts that was transplanted from the mountains to a neighborhood in the outskirts of Hanoi. Opening intermittently, Nhà Sàn created space for experimentation and community.

Nhà Sàn Studio quickly became a nexus for international art exchange: hosting lectures, and workshops, sound, video, installation and performance art. Along with providing artists with the chance to experiment with art forms distinct from state pedagogy and commercial markets, Nhà Sàn connected local artists with opportunities for exchange abroad, and hosted a wide range of  international projects, and artists in Vietnam.  

Nhà Sàn Studio nurtured the first generation of Vietnamese avant-garde artists emergent in the early 1990’s. These artist include Truong Tan, Tran Luong, Nguyen Van Cuong, Nguyen Minh Thanh, Nguyen Quang Huy, Ea Sola, Nguyen Manh Hung, Pham Ngoc Duong, Nguyen Minh Phuoc and Kim Ngoc

Nha San continues  to be valuable resource for an emerging generation of artists, including Nguyen Trinh Thi, Nguyen Phuong Linh, Nguyen Tran Nam, Nguyen Huy An, The Appendix, Nguyen Quoc Thanh and Tuan Mami.

Doshma, established as an art and culture centre aiming to capture the values and experiences of the Libyan Revolution, is a 140-sq-m hub of creativity where art can be exhibited, ideas can be expressed and people are brought together in a setting where they can eat, drink and relax. Doshma (meaning bunker), designed by architects Libya Design, was built largely employing recycled local materials including a shipping container from the revolution.
