No Place Like Home (A Vietnamese Exhibition) Part II
No Place Like Home is a free contemporary art exhibition co-curated and led by KV Duong and Hoa Dung Clerget. The collaboration features a group of Vietnamese diasporic artists presenting works about the theme of home through the Vietnamese cultural lens.
Visitors are greeted by a striking urban landscape installation constructed from Vietnamese plastic stools, highlighting the psychogeography of migrant populations. The main room showcases object-based works on a low white table, inviting viewers to sit on bamboo carpets to engage with the works. The fluid, curvilinear table shape intentionally breaks from the traditional administrative and patriarchal table, fostering dynamic interaction with the objects and each other. The table facilitates transmission of knowledge, experiences, and self-gifts, for artistic voices of marginalized second-gen immigrants.
Artists: Duong Thuy Nguyen, Cuong Pham, Caro Gervay, Minh Lan Tran, AP Nguyen & Koa Pham
