Southeast Asia Art Watch is a series of country-specific talks focused on both developed and emerging art scenes in the region.

Panellists will discuss the flourishing art scenes in Vietnam that have blossomed in cities like Ho Chi Minh, Hanoi and Hue, more than three decades after the economic reforms of doi moi. Operating in one of the few remaining communist regimes in the world, contemporary artists in Vietnam are increasingly participating in the wider global exchange of ideas, experimentation and social commentary, resulting in a dynamic ecology that appears yet subject to unique opportunities and pressures.
