‘Materialize’ is an ongoing exhibition program, initiated by The Factory in 2017, in response to the great lack of space and opportunity for Vietnamese artists to experiment and display their art in Vietnam. This program seeks artists willing to be challenged with their concepts and materials, who understand that to exhibit their work demands consideration of their audience and how their art is received and understood by a visiting general public.
Applications open to artists born and currently living in Vietnam, who are over the age of 25.
For our 2017 edition, 3 artists were successfully selected: Đạt Vũ, Hoàng Thanh Vĩnh Phong, and Lê Thế Lãm; while this December, the 2018 edition will delightedly bring you Nghĩa Đặng. In 2019, we are excited to work with Võ Thuỷ Tiên, Nguyễn Ngọc Thạch and Đặng Thuỳ Anh.
The next application call for Materialize 2020 will be updated soon.
