It was almost haunting to be surrounded by the years of collected stories of oppression, suffering, and resistance that are present in Trương’s works.
She cited so many that it seemed unbelievable that they all could somehow all be featured in a cohesive collection, but Trương’s exhibition achieves the impossible.
Instead, America and American art epitomized freedom; Americans were free.
Liên Trương: From the Earth Rise Radiant Beings is in the Van Every Gallery of Davidson College in the Visual Arts Center until October 03, 2021.
