DINH Q. Lê
b. 1968, Hà Tiên, Vietnam. Lives and works between Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam and Los Angeles, USA.

Internationally acclaimed artist Dinh Q. Lê was born in Vietnam and immigrated to the US at the age of ten to escape the Khmer Rouge. Lê is best known for his large-scale photographic weavings and video works that question the way in which world events are perceived. Inspired by traditional Vietnamese grass mat weaving, Lê weaves images chosen from a variety of motifs including the Vietnam War and Cambodian ruins. A deeply-thoughtful artist, Lê’s research focuses on people’s personal memories of historical events, notably on the complex legacy of the Vietnam War and it’s ongoing impact on contemporary Vietnam.

ARTIST'S NEWS
DISRUPTED CHOREOGRAPHIES
19 Feb 2014
Disrupted Choreographies weaves eight contemporary voices from Vietnam who propose alternate narratives between colonial histories, collective behavior, systems of class and the crumbling of ideological thought.

This exhibition challenges the relationship between Vietnam and the ‘global’ stage, illustrating an artistic community critical of the historical consciousness that often stands in for its name (ie. the guilt of war; the tourist getaway; the nostalgic colonial).

The artists in this exhibition juxtapose historical event and social phenomena; relevant to the diasporic contexts they conceptually and physically traverse. Their dance in the residual space of failing ideologies, post-industrialized communities, heterotopias and the ramification of representation are careful artistic choreographies that they understand are in cyclical movement, ie. in repeat.

Participating artists: Lena Bui; Tiffany Chung; Dinh Q Lê; Jun Nguyen-Hatsushiba; Nguyen Huy An; Nguyen Thai Tuan; Nguyen Trinh Thi and ‘The Propeller Group’

DINH Q. LE: CROSSING THE FARTHER SHORE @ Rice Gallery, University of Texas
11 Apr 2014
Dinh Q. Lê is planning an ambitious, architectural installation of black and white photographic ephemera taken from the Vietnam War era, pre-1975. He has collected these photographs over the years that are often similar to the images that might fill a family’s photo album: portraits, scenic vistas, snapshots from events, etc. They are stitched together in monumental grids and paired with text handwritten on the back of the photographs. Specific recollections of the Vietnam War era have been chosen by Dinh Q. Lê from oral history interviews, including those conducted by Rice University’s Chao Center for Asian Studies with Houston’s Vietnamese community, the second largest outside of California. The large photo assemblages will be hung from the ceiling to create ethereal, cube-like structures inspired by the rectangular mosquito nets used in Vietnam. Dinh Q. Lê characterizes the gesture as a “sleeping, dreaming memory of Vietnam.”

Dinh Q. Lê at the Gwangju Bienale, Gwangju, South Korea, 5 September – 9 November 2014
28 Aug 2014
The 10th Gwangju Biennale: Burning Down the House explores the process of burning and transformation, a cycle of obliteration and renewal witnessed throughout history. Evident in aesthetics, historical events, and an increasingly rapid course of redundancy and renewal in commercial culture, the Biennale reflects on this process of, often violent, events of destruction or self-destruction―burning the home one occupies―followed by the promise of the new and the hope for change.
 
The exhibition is curated by Jessica Morgan, Artistic Director of the Gwangju Biennale and The Daskalopoulos Curator, International Art, Tate Modern. FatosUstek and Emiliano Valdes are Associate Curators for the Biennale, EnnaBae is Associate Curator for Performance and Teresa Kittler is Assistant Curator.

The Roving eye: Contemporary Art from Southeast Asia

THE ROVING EYE
Contemporary Art from Southeast Asia
Curated by Iola Lenzi
17 September 2014–4 January 2015

From 17 September on, ARTER will host a large curated exhibition of Southeast Asian contemporary art for the first time in Turkey. Entitled “The Roving Eye: Contemporary Art from Southeast Asia” and curated by researcher and critic Iola Lenzi, the exhibition will present 40 works by 36 of Southeast Asia’s most innovative contemporary artists from Indonesia, Thailand, the Philippines, Singapore, Myanmar, Cambodia, Vietnam and Malaysia.
As well as introducing forms, materials, conceptual methodologies, and aesthetic codes commonly featured in the artistic production of the region, the exhibition will offer critical insights into today’s regional culture and the many tensions cleaving the societies of Southeast Asia. In particular, The Roving Eye argues multiple points of view on self and society as a central canon of Southeast Asian contemporary art.
The Roving Eye will feature installations, videos, sound pieces, photography and performances, a number of which were especially commissioned for the exhibition. The exhibition will place particular emphasis on works that embrace experience, interactivity and participation.
