Painting exhibition celebrates German-Vietnamese diplomatic ties

A painting exhibition featuring art works by the new generation of German artists will be organized at Vietnam National Museum of Fine Arts in Hanoi on May 14.

Six artists, including Stefanie Gutheil, Florian Meisenberg, Uwe Henneken, Sebastian Neeb, Tanja Rochelmeyer, and Christoph Ruckhäberle with international reputation will present their positions in contemporary painting. All of them refer in different ways to art history. The result varies from large-scale formatted figurative painting and architectural forms up to smaller scale cabinet pieces on wood.

The display marking the 40th anniversary of German-Vietnamese diplomatic relations will run until May 31.

The exhibition was held by the Goethe Institute in Hong Kong until mid-April under the direction of Gabriele Gauler.

The curator of the exhibition is art historian Dr. Marc Wellmann, artistic director of the Haus am Lützowplatz (HaL) in Berlin. He will travel to Hanoi for the opening ceremony of the event.
