World-renowned Vietnamese artist Dinh Q. Lê brings his first solo exhibition to Tokyo’s Mori Art Museum. Born in a small Vietnamese town close to the Cambodian border the young Lê and his family fled the country to escape the Khmer Rouge. A mixed media artist known for both his tapestries, made by weaving together strips of photographs, and his video installations, the artist creates works based around his country’s experience with war. Coming on the 40th anniversary of the end of the Vietnam War and the 70th anniversary of Japan’s defeat in WWII, this timely exhibit creates a unique portrait of a devastating period in history and its continued impact today.
