Curator Khong Do Tuyen said the exhibition introduces a flexible perspective connecting tradition and modernity.

"The artistic evolution of 'Transformation' introduces sculptors’ view of their homeland, origin, where countless generations of elite artisans have created many architectural and artistic works," said Tuyen.

Talking about the sculpture at the exhibition, Luong Xuan Doan, president of Vietnam Fine Arts Association said: "Vietnamese contemporary sculpture will continue to evolute differently... Each sculptor is challenging themselves. I feel their voices through these works, since they are creating a constant source of energy that nurtures hope for contemporary Vietnamese sculpture."
