Proliferation brings contemporary art from Vietnam to the College of East Asian Studies Gallery at Mansfield Freeman Center for the first time. Drawing on her context of living in a rapidly changing country, works by Lêna Bùi ’07 range from abstract paintings to candid video, broadly examining the less obvious effects of development on the socio-political and cultural fabrics of the country, and specifically dealing with people's negotiation with nature in various forms.

Image: Lêna Bùi, image from Nang Bang Phang (Flat Sunlight), 47 minutes, shot in Tien Giang, Vietnam, 2016.
