The Carnegie Museum of Art was established in 1896 and has since been a rendezvous point for contemporary artists from around the world.

The Art Labour group was formed in 2012 by painters Thao Nguyen and Cong Tung and curator Arlette Quynh-Anh Tran.

Jonas, based in New York, is a famed artist in performance and video art. She has coordinated with Art Labour on various projects.

Art Labour, based in HCM City, work between visual arts and social and life sciences in order to produce alternative non-formal knowledge via artistic and cultural activities in various public contexts.
