Performance Art in Vietnam

Action art / Live art in Vietnam.

Performance art first took off in Vietnam in the mid-’90s. Tran Luong began his artistic career as an abstract painter, a member of the renowned Gang of Five, a group of young artists who rose to pre-eminence after the Communist government finally opened up in 1986. But he fell out with his peers, whose increasingly commercial works disillusioned him, and switched to conceptual performance art in the mid-1990s. Often acting as a mentor to younger artists, he is now considered one of the fathers of performance art in Hanoi, along with Truong Tan and Dao Anh Khanh.
