The artworks represent the individual creative perspectives of the artists, but share their common view of traditional values, religion, and the Temple of Literature.

The open printmaking exhibition Dong Vong (Echo) has opened in Hanoi, featuring new printmaking works by eight artists who are teachers and alumni of the Vietnam University of Fine Arts.

The exhibition opened on October 12 at the Temple of Literature.

The works represented individual creative perspectives but shared the inspiration of traditional values and the Temple of Literature. The works in the exhibition are modern, fresh and highly interactive.

Nguyen Nghia Phuong, Vice Rector of the Vietnam University of Fine Arts, said: "In the historical space of the Temple of Literature, we hope to bring open graphics closer to a large number of domestic and international tourists, and contribute to creating a chorus through the sound of lines, ink on various materials, and techniques based on ancient memories to current consciousness."

According to artist Phuong, in the last decade, the term "open graphic art" has emerged and is gradually becoming known in Hanoi's graphic design and training community. Open graphic art is a term that has been Vietnamized to maximally encompass new forms of graphic art expression that connect with other arts.

The artists bring graphic images from the traditional two-dimensional space into the three-dimensional space of sculpture, installation, and performance art, combining light and sound.

Le Xuan Kieu, director of the Center for Cultural and Scientific Activities of Van Mieu-Quoc Tu Giam, said the exhibition is one of the activities to implement Hanoi City's policy to develop cultural industries and fulfill its commitments to joining the Creative Cities network.

"The Temple of Literature is hosting an open graphic art exhibition for the first time. Although the works are imbued with modern life, they are still based on traditional cultural ideals such as those found in the Temple of Literature. Through the exhibition, the artists demonstrate their ingenuity and integration while honoring the country's historical values," Kieu said.

The exhibition will run until November 6.
