Various styles of Vietnamese and German artwork will be displayed in Ho Chi Minh City during an exhibition between June 21 and 28.

"From Vietnam to Germany Art in Juxtaposition" displays drawings and sculptures of two Vietnamese and three German artists, inviting audiences to compare and contrast the cultures of the two countries.

The sculptures of Traude Linhardt are made from plastic package strings, wire, papers and film strips. The Torsi send a message of emptiness and abundance, as they suggest usability but are non-functional in the end.

Nguyen Thi Tam introduces a number of silk and oil paintings that capture conflict such as high and low spirits and life and death.

"The art work of these five artists with their individual styles and diverse cultural backgrounds present in the same space is like a dialogue in art," said Ma Thanh Cao, director of HCMC Fine Arts Museum.

The exhibition will be held at HCMC Exhibition House, 92 Le Thanh Ton, District 1 and is organized by the German Consulate General.
