Salon Natasha Archive
Established in 1990 by Natasha (Natalia) Kraevskaia, originally from Russia, and her husband, the artist Vu Dan Tan and located in their home, Salon Natasha served as Vu Dan Tan's studio, a meeting place for artists and intellectuals, and a venue for young, experimental, and non-commercial art. In the early 1990s Salon Natasha was the only exhibiting space free from government supervision and open to the new spirit of artistic freedom and innovation. The many exhibitions and art projects curated and supported by Salon played a significant role in the popularisation of the new Vietnamese art in Vietnam and abroad.

'Red and Yellow' was the first group exhibition in Salon Natasha. The show was considered experimental, regarding its thematic approach and its motive to ponder over the symbolisms of colours; through colours, the artists addressed in their works issues of religion (Buddhism), sexuality, and politics.
Participating artists of the exhibition include: Do Phan, Eric Leroux, Vu Dan Tan, Truong Tan, Mai Chi Thanh, Le Hong Thai, Mo Thanh, Bui Viet Dung, Tran Thieu Quang, Nguyen Dinh Dung, Ngi Dinh Chuong, Bui Xuan Phai, Nguyen Tu Nghiem, Natasha Kraevskaia, and Vu Thi Nhusha.
