香港邦瀚斯由即日起至明年1月24日呈獻亞洲首個聚焦重要越南二代藝術家作品群展：「新勢力 | 現代越南藝術」。展覽帶來十位重要越南第二代藝術家之逾25件作品。此群藝術家與黎譜（Le Pho；1907–2001）及梅忠恕（Mai Trung Thu；1906–1980）等生於安穩世代的前輩不同。
From now to 24 January 2020, Bonhams presents ‘The Next Wave | Modern Vietnamese Art’ at its Hong Kong gallery, the first-ever exhibition in Asia dedicated to key second-generation modern Vietnamese artists, featuring over 25 works by ten of the most significant artists from this period.
Unlike their predecessors including Le Pho (1907-2001) and Mai Trung Thu (1906-1980), who had lived and worked through relatively calmer times, the artists featured in the show saw their lives and careers inextricably intertwined with the profound shifts experienced by Vietnam and its people throughout the second half of the 20th century.
Collectively, they lived through the Vietnam War from the mid-1950s to 1970s, as well as the subsequent opening up of the country and economic reforms in the 1980s Đổi Mới era. Over three decades, the circumstances and orientations of this generation of artists underwent immense changes, as subject matters and sentiments that had been previously suppressed then came to the fore in their works. The current exhibition therefore provides a curated lens through which we learn how this influenced the unique stylistic developments and subject matters pursued by these artists.
