Exhibition "Dialogue between Calligraphy and Graffiti"

An exhibition named "Dialogue between Calligraphy and Graffiti" was organised in Hanoi on August 26.

Calligraphy is an ancient art form of the East. In the past, it was mainly practiced among intellectuals and literary enthusiasts. Meanwhile, graffiti represents a young cultural movement imported from the West associated with hip-hop culture.

Graffiti artists and calligraphers perform a piece together at the opening ceremony.

However, with the desire to find creative ideas, the Van Mieu-Quoc Tu Giam Culture and Science Centre in cooperatation with the Vietnam National Institute of Culture and Arts Studies have implemented the project "Dialogue between Calligraphy and Graffiti" over the two past months.

Vietnamese calligraphers and graffiti artists across the country have worked together to produce works that show the "dialogue" between the two art forms.

The exhibition featured 39 works of calligraphy and graffiti. The works are arranged like a story about two people with different personalities and the dialogue which brings them together to empathize and share with each other.

Director of the Van Mieu-Quoc Tu Giam Culture and Science Centre Le Xuan Kieu said: With the desire to make the Van Mieu - Quoc Tu Giam (Temple of Literature) not only a relic for everyone to visit, but also a creative space and a familiar destination for people who love heritage and art culture, the centre has implemented the project "Dialogue between Calligraphy and Graffiti".

Through the exhibition, the organising board wishes to create conditions for the public to access contemporary art created on traditional culture from the perspective of the young generation.

The exhibition will be open from now until September 30.
