Artist Talk: Dinh Q. Lê 

03/04/2014 5 p.m. – 7 p.m.  

Kresge Theatre, CMU

General Free

Artist Dinh Q. Lê spent his early childhood in his native Vietnam during the height of the Vietnamese War before he moved with his family at age 10 to the US. In his artistic practice, Lê developed an innovative multidisciplinary technique that combined traditional Vietnamese craft with images and fragments of history and modern truths. After earning an MFA at the School of Visual Arts at NYU, Lê returned to Vietnam at age 25, where he examined complex and contradictory topics such as the continuing legacy of the War and the marketing of Vietnam as a tourist’s paradise. Lê will discuss past projects and his recent work on view in the 2013 Carnegie International. Cosponsored by Carnegie Mellon University School of Art and Jeff Pan.

Cost: Free
