Spring Watching Pavilion presents the first major exhibition of contemporary Vietnamese art in Ireland. 2015 marks the 40 anniversary of the ‘Fall of Saigon’ and the end of the Vietnam war.

Spring Watching Pavilion exhibits the work of 14 artists who mostly work in lens based media and participatory/socially engaged practices. The works presented are dynamic, engaging yet poetic and nuanced in their reflection on the richness and complexity of contemporary Vietnamese life.

The title of this exhibition is taken from a poem of the same name by the 19th century Vietnamese poet Hồ Xuân HÆ°Æ¡ng. 

This exhibition is accompanied by programme of events through the Void Engage programme. There is also a film programme attached to the exhibition. Screenings take place daily from 3pm – 4.30pm. Admission is free.
