ABOUT THE ARTIST
Xuan Ha is an interdisciplinary artist and community-engaged art practitioner, who currently lives and works in Da Nang; and whose practice focuses on the sociocultural changes in her hometown in the central region of Vietnam. Through various experimentations with materials, space, and social interaction, Xuan Ha interprets the visual structure of her own narratives using a vast array of different artistic representations such as painting, video, sculpture, installation, and conceptual art.
Besides working as an artist, Xuan Ha also plays an active role in building and expanding the local art community as she believes that community is at the core of her practice. She co-founded the art collective Chaosdowntown Cháo in Saigon (2015-2019); and a sông club (2019) aiming to explore the identity of Da Nang - Quang Nam and its people.
