Spring Photos: Opening Reception and Gallery Talk: Lêna Bùi – Proliferation

On Thursday, March 29, 2018 Proliferation brought 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 ranged 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.
