Pipo Nguyen-Duy

Pipo Nguyen-Duy will speak about his continuing project ‘East of Eden’, which began in the summer of 2002 in the USA. Beginning as a series of large, staged, color photographs, ‘East of Eden’ questions the historical depiction of the American landscape as the Garden of Eden. Pipo will share how this project has grown over time, expanding with new narratives from the perspective of post September 11 and his frequent travels back to his country of birth since 2001. Pipo is currently based in Ho Chi Minh City courtesy of the John Simon Guggenheim Fellowship.
