The Gallery

The story of Art Vietnam Gallery and its Director, Suzanne Lecht, is as dramatic and transformative as the recent history of Vietnam itself.

Living and working in Asia since 1982, with a lifelong commitment to working in the arts worldwide, Art Director Suzanne Lecht is recognized as a leading authority on contemporary art in Vietnam. Suzanne has been working with Vietnamese artists since the day she moved from Tokyo to Hanoi in January 1994 and is dedicated to discovering exceptional artists who are singular and passionate in their expression.

2002 Art Vietnam opened its first gallery in a traditional Vietnamese "tube house" in Hanoi's ancient quarter of "36 Streets," it blended the old with the new and quickly established an international reputation as the authoritative source for contemporary art in Vietnam. With a track record of identifying and developing exceptional new talent, Art Vietnam has become one of the world's authoritative and sought-after resources and as a result, its gallery has become a destination for art tours of the world's leading cultural institutions, private collectors and diplomatic visits.

Presently housed in a salon style gallery conceived and constructed by Suzanne and her artist friends in 1994, the gallery continues to pilot its course as a unique force with an eclectic style, recognized both in Vietnam and abroad as an avant-garde voice of Vietnam today.
