About
The Factory Contemporary Arts Centre is the first purpose-built space for contemporary art in Vietnam. As an independent organization, we are a ‘factory’ of critical ideas; a site of constant physical transformation; a network of people who strive to speak about tangible and intangible cultural memories that matter and are indelibly unique. Located 20 minutes east of the centre of Ho Chi Minh City in Thao Dien, in District 2, The Factory’s unique architecture with over 500m2 stands out as a beacon of creative spirit.

"The Factory" Contemporary Arts Center in Saigon's newly posh Thao Dien district inside one of the bigger meanders of Saigon river, has opened in 2016 and is apparently going strong since, with great catalogues available

A great place to see Vietnamese expression about their life. If you love art, try to see by yourself!

place for chilling
Dec 2019
it was not really worth the drive out here, as the Art Center is very small with two rooms of exhibits. but at least it is a nice quiet place for a costly drink. I guess we would not come here again.

Great contemporary arts venue
Dec 2019 • Couples
We really enjoyed visiting District 2, a much quieter area of HCM. The Factory was well worth a visit. It's a small gallery but a beautiful space and showcases Vietnamese artists.There were 2 exhibitions on when we visited. There are nice cafes and there was a great crafts market when we were there. It was good to see another side of the city after the hectic pace of district 1.

Contemporary Art Space

An interesting space with contemporary exhibits, 3 at the time I visited with mostly 2-d work. Well-curated, kind staff, and information available in English as well as Vietnamese. I will definitely return.

Beautiful venue

The alternative, artistic type of building is the first thing to catch your attention. You have a strange feeling of being welcomed into the exhibition and are being guided thru it with a thoughtful structure. Definitely worth seeing.
