Bespoke: Lien Truong in Conversation at The North Carolina Museum of Art
FRIDAY, JANUARY 18, 2019 | 7:00 PM
WEST BUILDING, MODERN AND CONTEMPORARY GALLERIES
Join Lien Truong in a brief presentation about her work, Mutiny in the Garden, followed by a discussion about the paintings. Mutiny examines the political conditions embodied in America’s founding agrarian philosophy as a nation formed through colonization, diverse immigrant groups and slavery. Truong investigates the visual, social, and cultural influences that shape belief systems and heritage. Through a type of blended narrative painting, the work embraces a hybridity of painting materials, techniques and philosophies, referring to the complex cultural histories that mirror the American lens.
Mutiny in the Garden was supported in part by fellowships from the Institute of the Arts and Humanities and the North Carolina Arts Council.
