Moving Community Artist Talk @ Zero Station

From the organizer: MOVING COMMUNITY

Dear friends, we would like to invite you to join us at our friendly talk at ZeroStation. At this talk, participating artists will give a review of works and projects that they've been working on for the past year as well as what they aimed for and gained after each project.

They will also be discussing about new plans and upcoming projects. Not only the main purpose of this talk is to build a platform for artists to share both their experiences and visions through their art work creating process but also is to form multi-directional dialogues between them and the audience. By that way, the public will get the capacity to view the art scene in a more general way and to thoroughly understand the artists visions. Brief on recent activities at ZeroStation will also be included at the talk.

Participating artist:
Uu Dam Nguyen
Nguyen Nhu Huy
Liar Ben
Truong Minh Quy
Tran Nguyen Trung Tin
