National Gallery Singapore - Re-Imagining Home : Vietnam As Sign

► Re-Imagining Home: Vietnam As Sign, Site, and History in Contemporary Art

Join art historian Dr Pamela Corey as she surveys the works of diasporic Vietnamese artists that draw on themes of transnational history, such as competing nationalisms, contested historiographies, wartime trauma and diasporic migration.

This talk offers new interpretations of their artworks, such as through the lens of craft, mass media and urban form, thus illuminating other art historical connections and engagements with time, place and materiality.



WHEN: Saturday, 12 Aug 2017
TIME: 3pm – 4pm
WHERE: Glass Room (Supreme Court Wing, Level 5)



Admission is free on a first come, first served basis. As space is limited, please arrive early to secure a seat.



Pamela Nguyen Corey received her PhD from Cornell University and is currently Lecturer in South East Asian Art at SOAS University of London. Her writings appear in Art Journal, Yishu: Journal of Contemporary Chinese Art, Journal of Modern Craft, Udaya, Journal of Khmer Studies, as well as in numerous exhibition catalogues and platforms for art criticism. Her current book project examines the relationship between contemporary art and urban form in the late and post-Socialist periods in Vietnam and Cambodia.
