Rice University Art Gallery has commissioned Dinh Q. Lê to create the new installation, Crossing the Farther Shore. An acclaimed contemporary artist, Dinh Q. Lê is the first Vietnamese artist to have a solo show at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. He is well known for his approach to photography as a malleable material to splice, interweave and distort to explore his own relationship to Vietnam's complicated cultural and political history.
The opening celebration will feature remarks by Dinh Q. Lê at 6 p.m. Complimentary snacks and beverages, including ale courtesy of Saint Arnold Brewing Co., will be served. On view through Aug. 28.
