Opening Reception—Viet Nam Peace Project AugustAug 17 2023 05:00pm - 07:00pm225 Nebraska Street, Sioux City

Join us at the Art Center on Thursday, August 17, 2023, from 5-7pm for a free reception to open Viet Nam Peace Project.

Teo Nguyen’s solo museum exhibition invites contemplation and reflection on the Vietnamese people’s struggles toward peace and what the artist calls “the politics of worthiness.” His stories of heartbreak, optimism, resistance, and reconciliation that are interwoven into Vietnamese culture and spiritualism. His photorealist paintings reference historic images by photojournalists documenting the war in Vietnam but reimagine them without violence. By eliminating the helicopters, weapons, fighting, victims, and fallen soldiers, he reveals a country of diverse natural beauty. This act of reclamation shines a light on a Vietnam beyond the war, a place of rich culture and picturesque topography. Viet Nam Peace Project was on view at Minneapolis Institute of Art (July 30, 2022 - June 18, 2023). This iteration of the exhibition is curated by Christopher Atkins.
