Co-organized by the Vincom Center for Contemporary Art (VCCA) and Luong Art Space, the exhibition takes place from Oct. 10 to Jan. 2, 2022.
Nine famous sculptors, including Dao Chau Hai, Le Thi Hien, Khong Do Tuyen, Le Lang Luong, Luong Van Viet, Tran An, Thai Nhat Minh, Luong Trinh, and Dao Tan, used stones from a traditional village in northern Ninh Binh Province, transforming their pieces, colors, and shapes with a contemporary touch.

Curator Khong Do Tuyen said the exhibition introduces a flexible perspective connecting tradition and modernity.
“The artistic evolution of ‘Transformation’ introduces sculptors' view of their homeland, origin, where countless generations of elite artisans have created many architectural and artistic works,” said Tuyen.
Talking about the sculpture at the exhibition, Luong Xuan Doan, president of Vietnam Fine Arts Association said: “Vietnamese contemporary sculpture will continue to evolute differently… Each sculptor is challenging themselves. I feel their voices through these works, since they are creating a constant source of energy that nurtures hope for contemporary Vietnamese sculpture.”
The exhibition is open to the public at VCCA, B1-R3 Vincom Mega Mall Royal City, 72A Nguyen Trai Street, Thanh Xuan District, Hanoi. Along with the exhibition, VCCA will organize talks with local artists, experts, and art critics. Entry is free.
It also adopts strict pandemic prevention measures, limiting the number of visitors, requiring health declarations, and asking visitors to wear masks.
