“Confluence and Resurgence,” Exhibit (King Library)
Start Date: 4/15/2019 All Day
End Date: 5/30/2019
Event Description:
“Confluence and Resurgence,” an exhibition of Vietnamese-
American visual art, will be held from April 15 to May 30, 2019 downtown San Jose, Dr. Martin
Luther King, Jr. Library.
Participants are Vietnamese-American artists from California
including: Ann Phong, Đào Hải Triều, Kai Hoàng, Artemisia Lâm Kim Phượng, Henry Trịnh,
Nhơn Trần, Nguyễn Thanh Trí, Andy Nguyễn and Jenny Đỗ.
Confluence commemorates the fall of Saigon and South Vietnam on April 30, 1975, when the
massive exodus of the Vietnamese refugee diaspora began. Hope and search for freedom is the
confluence of the many streams of Vietnamese refugees, who eventually resettled all over the
world, in the lands of freedom. Resurgence celebrates the resilience of the refugees’ spirit: they
came, they survived, and they contributed. This exhibition celebrates May, the Asian Heritage
Month, and May 15, the Ao Dai Day, honoring the symbol of grace and strength of the
Vietnamese-American culture.
An official reception to honor the
participating artists and the events’ sponsors will be held on May 12, 2019. Join us and help us
commemorate our loss and celebrate our survival. And to enjoy some exceptional artwork!
