• CONTEMPORARY ART GALLERIES IN VIETNAM

    During the past few years, Vietnamese Modern Art has assumed a more definite shape. ‘Doi Moi’, or Vietnam’s Perestroika, introduced in 1986, has provided artists with more freedom. At the end of the eighties, this resulted in a boom in Vietnamese painting. Hundreds of artists participated in various exhibitions in the country. Just a few years ago, it was still impossible for Vietnamese artists to achieve international success. However, as a result of the recent economic developments in Vietnam, like the arrival of the foreign investors, the Vietnamese art market has grown dramatically and has attracted the attention of the foreign community.
