Dear Thorbjørn Reuter Christiansen,
It is our pleasure to officially invite you to join us as a participating artist in the first chapter of Saigon Open City's exhibition program, Liberation, which will open on November 25th, 2006 - January 31st, 2006 in Ho Chi Minh Fine Arts Museum, War Remnants Museum and Southern Woman Museum, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.
Saigon Open City is a long-term art and cultural project consisting of exhibitions and special events that will run within two years period from 2006 -2008. It will address the significance of modern art and contemporary art, looking at visual strategies and historical contexts in Vietnam and from the liberation period up to the present.
Saigon Open City's exhibition program will be based on specific, thematically - based chapters. The three different chapters will focus on the issues of liberation, unification, and (re)construction.
The first chapter, Liberation, will survey visual arts, which dealt with everyday life during the liberation period in Vietnam. It will simultaneously look at the art created in Vietnam alongside that produced by regional and international artists.
For more information about this project, please find Saigon Open City: Chapter 1 fact sheet attached. We hope that you will join us in realizing the first chapter of Saigon Open City's exhibition program. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us at any time, we would be more than happy to assist you. We await your reply with great anticipation.
