Dinh Q. Lê (MFA 1999 Photography and Related Media) has a new exhibition, “Tapestries,” opening at PPOW gallery, 555 West 25th Street, 2nd floor. Using a technique of “photoweaving,” Lê expresses his thoughts on the current situation in his home country of Vietnam. By weaving together strands of photographic materials, the artist is able to create complex and abstracted representations of the history of Vietnam’s past, present and future. “Tapestries” is at PPOW March 24 – April 22; there will be an opening reception on Friday, March 24th, 6 – 8 pm.
Lê will also have work included in “Infinite Painting: Contemporary Painting and Global Realism,” an exhibition at the Villa Manin Centre for Contemporary Art in Milan, April 9 – September 24.
