RENDEZVOUS: Event Description 

"Wonderful District, a young French artistic collective operating in Vietnam, is proud to announce an event sure to stand out on the HCM City Arts Scene.

This innovative evening, sponsored by the French Consulate and Lufthansa, will employ sounds and images from the world of video art and music and the voices of European and Vietnamese artists to speak a universal language.

For the first time in Vietnam,the artists will mix their creative work with digital technology for a live audience. Multiple screens both on and off the Museum of Fine Arts’ courtyard will be part of the visual art installation.

Tran Kim Ngoc is a young female composer living in Hanoi. After many years studying contemporary music in Berlin, she has recently started exploring new composition and performance techniques, combining electronic music, traditional instruments and improvisation.

French creative duo Patrice Gaillard and Claude (collectively known as Heidi) have performed in museums, clubs, art galleries and electronic festivals in Europe. Mixing images with sounds, they are two of the foremost members of the avant-garde group of artists beginning to build the world’s first ‘neo-techno pop art.’

Original video work by Bui Cong Khanh (Vietnam),Benoit Maire (France), Rich Streitmatter-Tran (U.S.)and a monumental lighting sculpture by Sandrine Llouquet (France) will also be on display in the gallery through November 20.

Wonderful District supports and promotes various forms of contemporary art in Vietnam. It brings together Vietnamese and foreign artists by organizing events, workshops, residencies, lectures and concerts—all with the overall objective of educating the public about digital culture."
