The IN Between: Artist Talk + Community Panel
September 25 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
“The IN Between” is an art exhibit by Vietnamese-American artist, Vy Ngo, that explores the ideas of immigration and finding acceptance within one’s ethnic heritage, within America, and within oneself. Pulling from her lived experiences as a refugee growing up in rural Pennsylvania and interviews with today’s immigrants – local students from the International High School in East Austin who come from various countries, the exhibition breaks down the complexities of immigrant identities through intimate portraits, abstract landscapes and a large scale installation.
Join Dougherty Arts Center for a free artist talk with Ngo and a community panel with members of RAICES, Casa Marianella, and Jolt Texas to discuss immigration from a broad variety of perspectives – artistic, legal, social, and political. Light snacks and refreshments will be provided.
