An-My Lê - Between Two Rivers


Regular price $60.00

Through her photographs, videos, installations and embroidered works, An-My L considers the cycles of global history and conflict, the complexities of diaspora and the sensationalizing of warfare. Published to accompany the artist's major survey at the Museum of Modern Art, An-My L Between Two Rivers is the first catalog to present L 's three-decade practice in different mediums, with seven photographic series presented alongside textiles, installations and newly rediscovered films. The two rivers in the title refer to the Mekong River in Vietnam and the Mississippi River in the southern United States, two important geographic locations that appear in the artist's photography from her earliest to her most recent works. An essay by curator Roxana Marcoci examines the full sweep of L 's creative practice; essays by scholars La Frances Hui, Joan Kee, Thy Phu and Caitlin Ryan each focus on specific series; and two texts by writers Monique Truong and Ocean Vuong bring poetic sensibility to L 's singular perspective.
