“Bạn Đến Chơi Nhà”, direct translation for “Friends visiting House” is a series of activities emerged from our friends of all disciplines who visit ba-bau AIR, to share and introduce about practices, current work, archive or dialogue between themselves and the communities. The series includes collaboration, talk, screening, gathering, happening, and more. Actually, the program existed way before we got to name it in 2022.

It will be around the theme of "co-habitation", as you already visited us through our stories or you did not visit us before, we invite you to visit us during that time or send us anything you want to present in the group show. It can be in any medium to display, and at the same time can be activations. It will be potluck show with potluck artworks and then potluck sales the last day of the show with the party. We will live together inside the space (on the floor) and at the same time it means inside the show as well.

It is what it is: a free-form conversation through the act of gathering, cooking, drinking, eating and being together. Each session is an “extended” conversation among host(s), invited guest(s) and participants of cross disciplinaries, ages, and interests, in order to stimulate connections and sharing by organic interaction in a casual, intimate setting that one does not usually have with the selected crowd. Inspired by our “trà dư tửu hậu” culture of lingering and longing for the sweetness aftertaste of drinking tea or wine, our kitchen talks often happen at evening time and can expand until the next day, depending on the flow, conversation, as people can freely join, leave, or relocate anytime.
We are constantly exploring this format.
Experimental reading session initiated and hosted by Gờ Rào at ba-bau AIR.
