Painting is emerging as emblematic of Vietnam in the same way that textiles have come to represent Sumba (East Indonesia) and stone sculpture characterizes Cambodia; each has become simultaneously a marker of national identity and a commodity in a global trade network." "By presenting artists as individuals actively involved in national life, Painters in Hanoi offers a truly innovative perspective on modern Vietnamese history. The book's ethnographic approach, grounded in discussions with artists, critics, and collectors, sheds light on a diverse art world, making the work of significant interest to anthropologists and art historians as well as students and scholars concerned with interdisciplinary research on culture and society."--BOOK JACKET.
