Not on view

Dinh Q. Lê: Memory for Tomorrow is a catalog published to accompany the artist’s first solo exhibition in Asia that took place at the Mori Art Museum in 2015 and the Hiroshima City Museum of Contemporary Art in 2016, both in Japan. Coinciding with the 40th anniversary of the end of the Vietnam War and the 70th anniversary of Japan’s defeat in World War II, the exhibition highlights the artist’s practice of weaving together multiple narratives about the Vietnam War. Such narratives, whether personal, official, or fictional, coalesce in the installation work "Light and Belief: Sketches of Life from the Vietnam War" (2012), which features 102 drawings by and interviews with surviving Vietnamese soldier-artists who documented North Vietnam’s war efforts.
