David Thomas’s Indochina Arts Partnership (IAP) and Lasell College are providing a rare glimpse into a portion of Hanoi’s vibrant art world through April 15, 2012.
Particularly strong is the ceramic plate and bell panel by Le Quoc Viet. The plates depict a compelling look at current Vietnamese vices. The ringing sounds of the bells are a distinct contrast to the powerful political messages.
The second floor exhibits a dozen lithographs that are available for purchase. Supplementing the prints and lithographs are a series of stunning cloth tubes covered with ancient Vietnamese writing. IAP is offering a limited number for sale to benefit its programs.
Wederman is another At-Hand hidden gem. Check it out soon. IAP exhibit is open 1-4PM.
