In the earliest period of the conflict in wartime Vietnam, the First Indochina War (1946-1954), many artists in North Vietnam were involved in supporting the communist-led Revolution against French colonial control. However, the most senior of these artists had in fact trained in the colonial-period art school established by the French in Hanoi, from the 1920s-1940s. Dr Phoebe Scott, Curator at National Gallery Singapore, discusses these artists and their students approached their art, as well as art exhibitions and education, assessing their colonial past while they navigated a complex new socio-political terrain.
