Year 12 and 13 Art Trip

Year 12 and 13 art students enjoyed a trip to the city centre last week to explore both the urban environment and a selection of Saigon’s up-and-coming independent art galleries.

The day started with a visit to recently pedestrianised Nguyen Hue, also known as walking street, where students had the opportunity to record, through sketches, rubbings and photographs, the surrounding buildings, surfaces and textures. Sourcing inspiration from first-hand experiences is a key aspect of the students’ work and all worked hard to relate what they saw to their personal projects.

Next stop was Galerie Quynh where Hanoi-based Ha Manh Thang is currently exhibiting. Seeing work within a contemporary white space was an exciting first for some students, and looking at the fresh thick paint combined with the carefully etched drawings in his work was inspirational to all.

After a pleasant lunch break at Station 3A (an area often frequented by local creatives and designers) we stopped at San Art to learn about their studio spaces, exhibitions, vast library of books and regular artist talks.

Our final stop was the Craig Thomas gallery where we were lucky enough to see the new show being hung in this small, quirky space.

Both year groups have since been using the research gathered to contextualise and inform their current work, with exciting and promising responses so far!
