Call it the seven-year itch. In as many years in this city, I'm finally making a go at a dedicated space. DIA/PROJECTS will serve primarily as my studio, and be a semi-public contemporary arts space with a library and archive, and a planned framework for a series of personally selected and commissioned artworks by visiting artists produced in Ho Chi Minh City.
6 meters wide. 20 meters long. 3 meter high ceilings, sunshine-o-plenty and a nice breeze.
Curators will no longer have to bear looking at drying undergarments in my room. No more meetings in noisy coffee shops. Yessir! I'm going to have my very own studio, and if you're wondering, i can barely afford it. I'll be working on getting the space into shape during Tet and will hopefully be inviting guests over by March.
