A turning point for Vietnam's contemporary sculpture (April 7, 2003)
By Nguyen Quan - Hochiminh City, 06/ 1998
 This question is often raised: Where is Vietnamese contemporary sculpture? Does it actually exit? Truly, with 200 painting exhibitions annually held at home and tens of arts display abroad, hundreds of galleries of all kinds mushrooming in towns and cities, and the preponderance of painting even in museums and art collections and its boom during the recent decade, such a question about sculpture - painting’s Fellow art - sounds quite reasonable.

Contemporary Vietnamese art during Doi Moi (Nov 19, 2002)
By Tran Thi Huynh Nga
 With the advent of Doi Moi (new change or renovation), Vietnamese fine art has been developing rapidly. After the end of the American War in 1975 until 1986 (when Doi Moi was implemented) the art community was stagnant partly because of a shortage of materials, but especially because of a dearth of new ideas. After 1986 artists were allowed to paint about wide variety of topics and in different styles which combined with the influx of tourism created a greatly revitalized art scene. The result was a tremendous gust of creativity sweeping through the country as studios and then galleries began appearing throughout the cities.
A glimpse of contemporary vietnamese art
By art critic Duong Tuong, 2000
 It is not very long since Vietnamese art in general and contemporary Vietnamese art in particular emerged from unrecognition - I'd rather say anonymity - to have its say on the world's art scene. For a long period, scholars and researchers in the West were prone to dismiss Vietnamese culture as a wan replica of Chinese or a mishmash of French-Chinese-Indian cultures
