Exhibit Description

Vagabond celebrates the expansiveness of the Vietnamese experience in America, rooted in the DMV. Almost 50 years after the end of the war, it’s important to capture the current perspectives of the diaspora because we are not solely defined by the trauma of war and displacement. The mainstream perception of Vietnamese Americans has remained unchanged for decades, rooted in the suffering of the war in Vietnam, yet nothing about our community is static. Vagabond offers counter narratives from the 1.5 and 2nd generation of this underrepresented community while highlighting multi-cultural intersectionality.
