Featuring Ngoc -Tran Vu and Anna Wexler
Opening event Friday, October 6 from 6-9 pm, with exhibition and participatory installation construction
Gallery hours Saturday – Sunday, Oct 7 & 8, from noon to 6 pm.
This event features an exhibit of the 2016 photographic series, “Pilgrimage to Hué”, the annual festival site for honoring an indigenous Vietnamese Mother Goddess through ornate boat altars, offerings and ritual trance, by the Boston-based multimedia artist Ngoc -Tran Vu. She and Anna Wexler of the Mobius Artists Group will construct an altar installation responding to the images and the healing intentions toward the suffering of ancestors and their war-desecrated land that they reflect. With invited audience participation, the process of altar construction and its material elements will extend these intentions to coming generations as we seek to face and transform the intertwined realities of war and climate change in our present moment, “For a Future to be Possible”, in the words of the Vietnamese Buddhist teacher and peace activist, Thich Nhat Hanh.
