Please join us for an intimate round-table discussion with three Vietnamese-American artists about the post-war Vietnamese Diaspora and its negotiation and conversation with Current Vietnam. The artists are visual artist Dinh Q. Le, fashion designer Chloe Dao, and poet Bao-Long Chu. This 3-voice conversation arose from and, in a way, a response to Le’s current installation at Rice Gallery, Crossing the Farther Shore.

This event is being presented in collaboration with the Humanities Research Center and Dean of Humanities. Reception to follow in the gallery.
