Digital art space to open in Hue 

 Friday, April 14,2023

AsemconnectVietnam - A digital art space called SongLab will open in May in Hue city, central Thua Thien-Hue province, bringing visitors a multidisciplinary space integrating technology, art, entertainment, and education.

 Covering an area of over 1,000sq.m, SongLab is the first digital art space in Vietnam that will offer visitors a chance to experience digital art in a large area.

The space, which is jointly organised by Duong Do, founder of Toong co-working space network, and visual artist Tung Monkey, with the participation of many Vietnamese visual and sound artists, holds the promise of a uniquely elevated living experience for all visitors.

SongLab plans to welcome the public by May 2023, and is devoted to becoming a source of pride and renewed connections for Hue residents, as well as a remarkable attraction for domestic and international tourists.

The opening of this digital art space plays a meaningful role as this year also commemorates 30 years of the Hue Citadel Relics complex, a UNESCO World Heritage site. In that vein, a next-gen entertainment and art space, equipped with avant-garde technologies and taking shape right at the centre of the former royal capital city, will be not only the pride of local residents but also an outstanding tourism product for national and international tourists, helping elevate the tourism landscape of Hue and Vietnam in general.

“The scale of SongLab is much grander than my previous projects. Rather than being located in flourishing metropolitans such as Ho Chi Minh City or Hanoi, SongLab is coming alive in old graceful Hue. This is a deeply interesting challenge for me. SongLab, upon its completion, will set new standards for contemporary digital art spaces in Vietnam,” Tung Monkey said.

As curators, Tung Monkey and The Visual 084 have been working with talented emerging visual artists including Dustin Ngo, Minh Nhat, Cuong Nguyen, Julian Tuan, Kyunri Vien, Ngoc Quy, and Travis Cohantz.

Together, they are telling unique visual stories in the Hue-based digital art space. Audiences will get to be immersed in breathtaking experiences powered by state-of-the-art 3D mapping technologies, the same technologies that enabled large-scale art installations at Changi Airport and Marina Bay in Singapore.

Duong Do, creative director and manager executive of SongLab, says that he feels lucky to be supported by and collaborating with Tung Monkey, as well as so many artists and artisans in Hue, Hanoi and HCM City throughout the journey of building the 9,000sq.m commercial and entertainment complex SongPlatform, the new heart at the heart of Hue.

SongPlatform is a big leap in Do’s grand vision to design a complete ecosystem for work, leisure, pleasure, art, shopping, cuisine, and education, which he started by founding Toong co-working space back in 2015. SongPlatform is working at full capacity to open its doors by May 2023./.
