Tuan Andrew Nguyen: The Boat People
November 5, 2021–January 16, 2022
Extracting and re-working narratives via history and supernaturalism is an essential part of Nguyen’s video works and sculptures where fact and fiction are both held accountable. Set in an unspecified future at the precarious edge of humanity’s possible extinction, The Boat People follows a group of children led by a strong-willed and resourceful little girl, who travel the seas and collect stories of a world they never knew through objects that survived through time.
Opening Reception: November 5, 2021 (First Friday)
