Danh Vō will discuss his practice with Hendrik Folkerts, Dittmer Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art at the Art Institute of Chicago.


Vietnamese-born Danish artist Danh Vō draws upon his and others’ biographies and aspects of political history and social memory to dissect the forces that affect our lives in overt and unexamined ways. He analyzes the structures and processes that shape our identities, such as the American dream, capitalist culture, civic bureaucracy, colonial history, migration, and religion.
