WE/OURS/US—to put it colloquially, HOMES ARE US—is VASCAM's first collaboration with FAR Center for Contemporary Arts for a special exhibition that combines physical and digital presentations of art works by Hùng Việt Nguyễn and Ann Phong, with live improvised performances from a singer, a bassist, and two dancers.
Finding inspirations in landscapes of Vietnam and the U.S., Hùng creates surreal and provocative images. Ann dwells on past memories and current political, cultural and environmental issues to inch her dreamy and poignant personal sphere. As first-generation Vietnamese Americans, both have found HOME in their art and in SolCal.
We value communities because they are the cornerstones of our society. We reach out while learning and serving within.
Our monthly bilingual newsletters in English and Vietnamese keep us all connected.
