ON VIEWViệt Nam Peace Project
The Minneapolis Institute of Art presents Việt Nam Peace Project, a solo exhibition by Minneapolis-based artist Teo Nguyen. Nguyen’s photorealist paintings and other site-specific works invite contemplation and reflection on the Vietnamese people’s struggles toward peace by reclaiming the narrative of Vietnam and shining a light on the country beyond the war. The exhibition was curated by Dennis Michael Jon, Mia’s associate curator of Global Contemporary Art, in collaboration with the artist.
Presented as part of Mia’s Minnesota Artists Exhibition Program (MAEP), POSTURING is a multimedia installation by Minneapolis-based interdisciplinary artist Joshua McGarvey that explores the abstraction of truth. Through sculptural installations, the exhibition invites visitors to consider how museums like Mia often display objects out of their original context to imbue different meanings. The exhibition also features video work that experiments with the concept of truth and the presentation of self.
