KỆ: History of Now – a Collection of Artists Books from Vietnam
What is Kệ? In Vietnamese, kệ means bookshelf and it also means “(I) do not care”. The careless attitude is criticized as irresponsible manner among millennials in Vietnam. Yet when spoken, “kệ” – as “I don’t care” shows a determined mindset of a person who is ready to reject the old traditions in order to express anew.
This exhibition is organized by the Indochina Arts Partnership, the Vietnam Artists Book Projects at the Wedeman Gallery of the Yamawaki Art and Cultural Center.

Quynh Lam had the opportunity to visit Sinh village and interact with local people there during my research trip.

Quynh Lam's work was featured in 'Vietnam: New Winds' as a part of the larger collection Imago Mundi project.
"Imago Mundi is the collection of works commissioned and collected by Luciano Benetton. The collection, under the auspices of the Fondazione Benetton Studi Ricerche
(established to support and raise awareness of the wealth of landscape, cultural and artistic heritage), has no commercial ambitions but aims to unite the diversities of our world in the name of common artistic experience. The goal is to catalogue works, inspirations, and ideas, in order to pass down to future generations the widest possible mapping of the situation of human cultures at the start of the third millennium."
The ECO-art VN project, which is organized by the independent curator group ACCA and Muong Studio, aims to make a breakthrough in promoting the formation and the development of Vietnam ECO-art.

"Inspired by the desire to narrow the gap between contemporary art with the general public, as well as connecting artists, the exhibition is part of a bigger community art project with the same title hosted at four different spaces: Sao La, Lê Công Kiều Station, Freeland, and Studio Nguyễn Công Trứ. Located in remained colonial architectures by Ben Thanh market of the former Eastern Pearl, four spaces by chance gather in the heart of Saigon to form a small circle of art that at the same time blends and contradicts to the surrounding shopping centers."
