These objects range from plastic chairs and overhead projectors to signs that display summaries of notable teaching philosophies, items the artist sometimes finds through Craigslist or surplus and thrift stores.

Truong’s Fall 2015 exhibit is making a five-week stop at Northwestern’s Dittmar Memorial Gallery from Oct. 29 through Dec. 6. The gallery is located on the first floor of Norris University Center on Northwestern’s Evanston campus.

Group Exhibition: Country, Home
September 5 - October 10, 2015

CUE Foundation
137 West 25th Street, Ground Floor
New York, NY 10001
(212) 206-3583
Hours: Tuesday - Saturday, 10am - 5pm

Opening Reception: Saturday, September 12, from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m.

Country, Home is an exhibition of multiple narratives by differing immigrant and first-generation American artists, exploring the particular tensions and challenges of these culturally and socially under-recognized groups. Most importantly, the exhibition is about social issues and art.

Country, Home is an elusive phrase, a question about the strength of the words themselves – does country constitute home? If not home, then country? The work presented falls somewhere in between. It addresses the preconceptions and assumptions of locationism and nationalism – the parts where the American dream falls flat for most “others” – where the presumed achievement of being in America contrasts with expectations.

The exhibition does not aim to produce a survey-view of multiculturalism. Instead, the exhibition gathers different voices in a seemingly non-directionally heavy-handed way, much like the experience of the American “melting pot” of mixed immigrant cultures. No one immigrant/immigrant-born artist experience is exactly alike, and this exhibition embraces that reality and translates it into visual narrative form. Seemingly unrelated artists and forms are juxtaposed to reveal narratives of outsider isolation, economic position, documentary and identity, and navigation.
