The Factory Contemporary Arts Centre

The Factory Contemporary Arts Centre is an independent organization established in 2016 by artist Tia-Thuy Nguyen. Located 20 minutes east of the centre of Ho Chi Minh City in Thao Dien, in District 2, The Factory’s unique architecture is composed of a warehouse with over 500m2 of designed display space by HTA + Pizzini Architects, replete with a container-ville at its street-font. The Factory operates as a social enterprise, whereby all profit from sale of art and business on the property supports the running costs of its art-related programs. Their program of curated exhibitions, workshops, live arts, talks and film screenings is driven by the needs of our local community, particularly committed to assisting artists in their search for resource, visibility and support. The Factory aims to initiate programs that connect and develop cross-cultural dialog, collaborating with like-minded partners at home and abroad, in the creation of quality projects and opportunity that further develops artistic production and cultural publics in Vietnam.
