Contemporary Art

It would not be an exaggeration to say that Hanoi's contemporary art scene has exploded in recent years, with galleries popping up faster than mushrooms and many of Hanoi's top artists exhibiting outside Vietnam. Witness this art revolution in everything from music and painting to more traditional mediums like lacquer. Often works have a bit of political bite. Many galleries in the capital city will ship art to your home country; the customs fee is usually included in the shipping cost.
 

Hanoi is brimming with talented young visual artists whose works are selling. Take note that some less-scrupulous art shops in Hanoi will give you an 'exclusive right certificate' to try to convince you of a piece's authenticity. Since Vietnam's art industry is not regulated, this kind of document is about as valuable as a banh mi paper wrapper. Stick to well-known galleries with good reputations if you want a hassle-free buying experience.
