Everyday art goes on show at the Emergency Room

An exhibition called Emergency Room, featuring works by Vietnamese and Danish artists, is being held at the Vietnam University of Fine Arts in Hanoi until Dec 8.

According to a press release from the Danish Embassy, Emergency Room, which opened on Nov 24, is an ever changing exhibition room which makes it possible for participating artists to “respond to daily happenings and prevent delayed comments on yesterday’s world.”

The concept of Emergency Room was developed by Danish Artist Thierry Geoffroy. It has been held in several cities in the world including New York and Paris.

Fourteen Vietnamese and four Danish artists are participating in the Emergency Room in Hanoi.

The artists are free to mix different media for their creations.For instance, their work can be a multimedia project including both painting and sculpture. Each day at 11.00 am the artists must  hand in a new piece of artwork, which means the exhibition presents new art pieces daily.

Entrance to the Emergency Room is free.

The Vietnam University of Fine Arts is located on 42 Yet Kieu Street, Hanoi.
