The Diasporic Vietnamese Artists Network (DVAN) is proud to be a sponsor of Love in the Time of War, an exhibition presented by UC Santa Barbara and SF Camerawork featuring emerging and established transnational artists with ties to Southeast Asia, Europe, the U.S., and in-between. Curated by Việt Lê and Jennifer Vanderpool, the exhibition will be on view at UC Santa Barbara Glass Box Gallery from August 4 - 25, 2016 and at SF Camerawork from September 1 - October 15, 2016. A website featuring special online-only artist projects and a full-color print catalogue accompanies the show: http://loveinthetimeofwar.com
Love in the Time of War connects with the fortieth anniversary of the military engagements in Southeast Asia (2015) and current wars overseas and on U.S. streets. The exhibition explores the relationship between war and personal intimacy, between politics and the body and the body politic. The artists involved embody the contradictions of engaging love—its contingency and urgency— in a time of eternal wars. Through their transnational perspectives, these artists facilitate a disquieting but necessary conversation on personal intimacies and political violence.
