The Factory’s Reading Room houses a diverse and continually-expanding resource of publications spanning from modern to contemporary art, with particular geographical focus on Vietnam and South East Asia. From local and international art history books, exhibition catalogues, artist monographs, foreign institutional publications and art magazines, the Reading Room caters for a myriad of interested audience, from researchers and experts to those who are just starting out with curiosity towards the arts.
The Reading Room aims to:
- Encourage and nourish a pro-active reading community (via a series of ‘how and what to read’ workshops where experts from various fields will share insights on reading tactics, book selection, applying textual knowledge to real life, amongst others)
- Introduce important texts in the field to disseminate knowledge on art and culture, and to enhance art appreciation (via book launches and discussions with authors)
- Connect established and rising incubators of art publishing to the public (via talks with publishers, writers, editors, translators etc.)
