FREE EVENT THIS COMING FIRST FRIDAY

Chau Nguyen’s Memory Bank showcases oil and mixed-media installations that explore concepts of memory construction and domesticity. Nguyen paints as catharsis to a wealth of alienating experiences, including a tumultuous upbringing in North Vietnam, mental illnesses, and the weight of conflicting cultural identities. Her intensely-hued, often recontextualized canvases bind together imagery from her immediate surroundings, memory, and Vietnamese visual archives. Memory Bank embodies Nguyen’s vision to evoke compassion in increasingly divisive societies.
