The exhibition introduces to viewers 79 artworks, divided into 18 thematic topics, including the space of “Truc Chi’s journey” (Sharing the achievements reached in each stage of Truc Chi’s operation); the space of “The Arts of Truc Chi” (Displaying the artworks of 9 Truc Chi artists across different periods); the applied arts space (Presenting the arrangement of applied artworks using Truc Chi graphic skills, unique and distinctive applied artworks); and the space for Tea Meditation (Where art-loving people can stop, enjoy tea, contemplate paintings, and share their thoughts and questions about Truc Chi).

The “Tham” exhibition embodies the applied arts and Truc Chi’s identity through its creative capacities, expressions, and scope, as well as through the adaptation to contemporary life that Truc Chi has reached for the past 10 years. This is an opportunity for Truc Chi to introduce its talented artists, marking a milestone for the next 10-year journey of research and development, upgrading Truc Chi into a new cultural value of Vietnam.

The main activities of the event include the exhibition, seminar, and workshop, where art enthusiasts not only get the chance to enjoy Truc Chi artworks but also engage in the conversations and experience the values of this kind of arts through interactive activities with materials and techniques.

All Truc Chi artworks are meticulously hand-made, guided by the principles of “Aesthetics – Education – Society”. This new kind of art originated from traditional methods, and later evolved into Truc Chi graphic technique from the dominant idea: “Bestow upon paper an ability, liberating it from the role of a mere “background” to become a standalone and independent artwork”. Truc Chi was born to honor the values of gratitude and humanism in a creative way through a distinctly Vietnamese artistic language.

“Tham” is the second exhibition of Truc Chi in 2023, following the “Nang” exhibition held in Da Nang in June 2023. Each arrangement in this exhibition engages in a dialogue with heritage and cultural spaces. Therefore, it also provides a new opportunity to upgrade the values of arts, architecture, and heritage.
