Dinh Q. Lê: Crossing the Farther Shore
Dinh Q. Lês Crossing the Farther Shore is composed of the kind of photos that might fill a family’s photo album, showing a different side of life in South Vietnam before the Vietnam War broke out in 1975. Visitors have written their impressions in the gallery guestbook. One noted, “Beautiful, inspiring, moving. Thinking of discovering a lost family photo brought me to tears!” Another wrote, “As a Vietnamese American, this is a strong symbolic piece of artwork. It was truly emotional and a very poignant piece.”

Yusuke Asai: New Installation
Japanese artist Yusuke Asai keeps things simple: he paints with different types of mud, dust, soil, and other natural materials he finds locally. He became known internationally when images of his work in a classroom at the Niranjana School in Bihar, India spread across the Internet. Asai was invited by Tokyo’s non-profit organization Wall Art Project to transform the classroom into a place of inspiration for children. His immersive, ephemeral wall painting was made from seven different kinds of soil Asai collected in India. What had been the ground beneath people’s feet became an imaginative forest full of creatures, animals, people, and lush pattern crawling across the walls and ceiling.
Come see Yusuke Asai transform Houston’s swampy soil!
