Ha Noi SOC’s workshops   “ Movement and conversion”  September 2006
Curator: Tran Luong Discussion: Dang Hoang Giang
In general context of cultural and art development process in Viet Nam, art commercialization trend and  norm of directing toward serving the masses’ tastes are transgressing academy flows and art development programs completely.
Beside many social situation reasons, the basic shortage of art education, specialist  training as well as taking less importance on supporting and introducing art have led to the break among public, artists and art supporting structure.
One important part in SOC principle is to build infrastructure for the existing of  contemporary art in VietNamese life as an indispensable part in art flowing rhythm: building public, technical material facilities, art spartial systems and world relations.
Futhermore, bringing as many chances as good for learning, contacting and experimenting with colleagues, older artists and especially international rank artists is not less important. The coming workshop in Ha Noi  is  in series of SOC activities, aiming at  above art developing purposes.
