group exhibit in Viet Nam





San Art is pleased to announce our second exhibition entitled, “City Panoramic”.  “City Panoramic” is an international photography exhibition curated by Tiffany Chung, features artists Miles Ladin (USA), Takashi Arai (Japan), Scean Mitchell aka Soundproofgreay (USA/Japan), Junko Ito (Japan), Bui The Trung Nam (Viet Nam) and Stephanus Kim (USA).  “City Panoramic” is an attempt to re-imagine the urban landscape and to understand our experience of the city through photography. 

While some of the works examine whether the city architecture fits within the natural landscape or is an intrusion to it, others attempt to re-define nature within the urban context.  These works also reflect the urban experience of city inhabitants through their repetitive mapping, speed and impulse.  Moreover, the artists were asked to digitally ship their photographs to Viet Nam.  This is an important aspect of the show’s concept in which our references of the urban space are expanded to the invisible boundaries of digital networks and wireless technologies, not only its physical landmarks and borders.  In this regard, “City Panoramic” isn’t just a document on the tangible manifestations of the never-ending process of urbanization but rather explores its underlying meaning and structure by investigating the social and cultural impacts.
