Exhibition “3 . 3 . 3” by Le Cong Thanh
Heritage Space is honored to introduce “3 . 3 . 3”, a solo exhibition by Sculptor Le Cong Thanh, an important Vietnamese sculptor in 20th century, curated by Nguyen Anh Tuan.
Exhibition “3 . 3 . 3” by Le Cong Thanh.
“3 . 3 . 3” is a sculptural interpretation of Le Cong Thanh’s artistic spirit. This exhibition does not display currently available works at his workshop, but chooses three models from his thin-steeled sculpture series, then enlarge them into nine “sculptures” in medium to large sizes, with the consent of the artist and his family.
Each sketch is a generalized representation of the sculpture figure he pursues: the female body, Totem objects, the endless column with a spirit of mystery, sensuality, thirst and grandiosity.
Thin-steeled sculpture, developed by Le Cong Thanh in the late 1980s, has been a big step forward in the thinking and visual language of the artist. He continued to work this way for many years, with small sketches and medium-sized statues, quietly working and waiting for the opportunity to showcase them in large spaces. These works make up a significant part of his massive collection of art over half a century of work. They are also the most interesting, contemporary and popular.

Seminar: “Children Learn While They Play”
At the seminar titled "Children Learn While They Play – how and what do they learn? What do children learn when they play?", professionals from Vietnam, France and Germany will share their experience and insights about the use and value of outdoor playground for children.
Seminar: “Children Learn While They Play”.
Playing conveys happiness to all children; however not all parents like to watch their children play outdoors. But there are valuable insights to be acknowledged. We invited two experts from France and Germany to share with us their insights and experience about the importance of playing. They will bring along hands-on experiences, and exciting new ideas which are relate to theories of educational culture for children. This seminar offers an opportunity for Vietnamese professionals and parents to get into a dialogue with our guests on the issues of education, life skills development and, more importantly, ways to make the presence and future of our children a life of fulfillment and happiness.
The conference is part of a series of events called the Play Campaign. The aim is to build a dialogue with the community about the importance of playing for the mental and personality development of our children. The program is supported by the German-French Culture Foundation, the Goethe-Institut Hanoi, the French Cultural Center L’Espace Hanoi and other sponsors and partners.

Exhibition “The Best of Environment and Culture”
Vietnam has a rich culture which manifests itself in our language, foods and a variety of products – but not so much in architecture. Although having been making progress over the years, architecture in Vietnam has not had major steps of development, partly because of the harsh weather conditions during summer and winter.
Exhibition “The Best of Environment and Culture”.
You are invited to an architecture exhibition with Takashi Niwa Architects to discuss the optimal combination of environment and culture in architecture. Takashi Niwa Architects will also share their experience doing architectural projects in Vietnam.
Time: Friday July 20 at 7:00 pm
