Tiffany Chung (Vietnam/USA) is noted for her cartographic drawings, sculptures, videos, photographs, and theater performances that examine conflict, migration, displacement, urban progress and transformation in relation to history and cultural memory. One of Vietnam’s most respected and internationally active contemporary artists, she recently presented a major solo exhibition at the Smithsonian American Art Museum, Tiffany Chung: Vietnam, Past Is Prologue (March – September 2019), which was organized as a response to the museum’s groundbreaking group show, Artists Respond: American Art and the Vietnam War, 1965–1975. In 2019, Tyler Rollins Fine Art presented passage of time, a solo exhibition by Chung.

I recognize this lady’s art. Kusama has been creating paintings, sculptures, installations, fashion, performance art, and more for a long time. She has dabbled in contemporary, feminist, pop, minimalism, and environmental art. If I’m not mistaken some fashion, poetry and more.

Her current works are displayed Baltimore Museum of Art, Inhotim Museum, The Museum of Modern Art, Blanton Museum of Art in Austin Texas, and others.

You can read an article titled 10 Most Famous Asian Contemporary Artists To Keep an Eye Out For by Manas Sen Gupta on Prestige that was published earlier in March of this year.

Here are other artists on or already on the horizon…

Hope you guys enjoyed this series of contemporary artist’s talents. Literature, art…what’s next? You will have to check it out really soon! Enjoy the rest of your weekend, be safe, healthy, and blessed.
