Description:  Thirty years after The Fall of Saigon in Vietnam, and a decade after the flowering and subsequent proclaimed failure of multiculturalism and identity politics in the United States, this exhibition highlights contemporary Vietnamese American visual artists whose work and subjectivity is affected by these socio-political intersections. Through experimental video, abstract painting, and photography, these multi-generational artists’ seemingly disparate practices explore memory, failure, sexuality, trauma, and the ambivalent politics of cultural difference. Featured artists Include Dinh Q. Le, Nguyen Tan Hoang, Ann Phong, Tran T. Kim-Trang and curated by Alice Ming Wai Jim and Viet Le.
