DINH Q. LÊ: TRUE JOURNEY IS RETURN

Exhibition / United States
September 14, 2018 - April 7, 2019
San Jose Museum of Art
110 South Market Street
San José, CA 95113
 

The largest solo exhibition in the United States in more than a decade of the work of internationally-renowned artist Dinh Q. Lê, this exhibition of five major video and photography installations entwines rarely heard narratives of war and migration from people in North Vietnam, the Vietnamese diaspora, and refugees who, like Lê, have returned to live in their home country. Assembling these obscure stories through the collection of found photographs, artists’ war sketches, and oral histories, Lê presents a multifaceted story about Vietnamese life before, during, and after the Vietnam War. In the process, he questions the viability of collective memory and reveals the effects of trauma on the cultural imagination.

ACC has provided support to the San Jose Museum of Art for this exhibition.

Grantees: San Jose Museum of Art, Dinh Q. Le
