Dự án E.A.T (Exercitation.Art.Term) is a non-profit art education program founded, coordinated and curated by Ms Pham Dieu Huong (M.A), professor of the department of Art critic and History in Vietnam Fine Art University together with the help of two assistants: Phạm Ngọc Hà Ninh and Vi Tường Vi. E.A.T was created with purpose of selecting and supporting some art students towards deeper understanding of contemporary art practices on different subjects over the course of a few months. The members of the projects also participated in theory lessons to support thinking, skills and methods of making art together with team activities to develop the concept and practice the chosen subjects. The end of the project is a group exhibition displayed the works, results of the learning and sharing process of the members in the group.
THIK thì NHIK” (We like so we do) is the achievement of the process above. The exhibition contains installtions and video installations by 9 young artists (they either had graduated or currently are studying at the Vietnam Fine Art University). “THIK thì NHIK”is made like a continuous idea from the first exhibition E.A.T named “Students Make Art” (03.01 – 08.01.2012 at Viet Art Center) to explore, open up art creations, and the effort towards technique perfection and the artwork quality. The artworks are on diferent subjects trying to experiemnt different emotions of each artist through contemporary art with a spirit: Making art because we like, when we like it we will do our best.”
