Unfolding Time

Works by An-My Lê and Liza Nguyen

Curated by Christopher Rauschenberg and Stephanie Snyder

February 4-28, 2010

Unfolding Time: Vietnamese Photography, Then and Now is an exhibition of Vietnamese photography by two contemporary women artists—Liza Nguyen and An-My Lê—shown alongside family photographs loaned to the exhibition by members of the Vietnamese community in Portland, Oregon.

This exhibition brings together contemporary photography and vernacular snapshots to create a multifaceted image of representation, place, and memory. Unfolding Time considers artists' and individuals' gravitation to the photographic image as an uniquely personal and imaginative agent engaging everyday life and cultural critique. Family photographs will continue to accumulate throughout the course of the exhibition.

Unfolding Time: Vietnamese Photography, Then and Now is curated by Blue Sky, Christopher Rauschenberg, and Stephanie Snyder, curator, Douglas F. Cooley Memorial Art Gallery, Reed College.

This exhibition is generously supported by The Paul G. Allen Family Foundation.
