Tiffany Chung: Vietnam, Past Is Prologue
From: 11:30 AM to 7:00 PM
Tiffany Chung is a multimedia mastermind, and this installation at the Smithsonian American Art Museum looks to be a masterpiece. Chungs father fought alongside American forces during the Vietnam War, and her family came to the U.S. during the post-war exodus from the country. Past Is Prologuefeatures video interviews, photos, watercolors, texts and hand-drawn maps that reveal the jaw-dropping scale of the war and its still-echoing impact, all gathered by Chung through painstaking research. The exhibit will paint a riveting portrait of how one war drastically re-shaped contemporary society.
