THE MUSEUM OF MODERN ART, NEW YORK

An-My LÍ: Between Two Rivers

Edited with text by Roxana Marcoci. Text by La Frances Hui, Joan Kee, An-My LÍ, Thy Phu, Caitlin Ryan, Monique Truong, Ocean Vuong.

An-My LÍ: Between Two Rivers

At once quietly grand and pervasively eerie, An-My LÍís photography and art explores scenes of conflict and political intrigue, both real and simulated

Through her photographs, videos, installations and embroidered works, An-My LÍ considers the cycles of global history and conflict, the complexities of diaspora and the sensationalizing of warfare. Published to accompany the artistís major survey at the Museum of Modern Art, An-My LÍ: Between Two Rivers is the first catalog to present LÍís three-decade practice in different mediums, with seven photographic series presented alongside textiles, installations and newly rediscovered films. The two rivers in the title refer to the Mekong River in Vietnam and the Mississippi River in the southern United States, two important geographic locations that appear in the artistís photography from her earliest to her most recent works. An essay by curator Roxana Marcoci examines the full sweep of LÍís creative practice; essays by scholars La Frances Hui, Joan Kee, Thy Phu and Caitlin Ryan each focus on specific series; and two texts by writers Monique Truong and Ocean Vuong bring poetic sensibility to LÍís singular perspective.
An-My LÍ (born 1960) was born in Saigon, Vietnam, and came to the US in 1975 as a political refugee after the fall of Saigon. She studied at Stanford University before attending Yale School of Art, receiving her MFA in 1993. Her previous publications include Small Wars (2005) and Events Ashore (2014), and she is the recipient of the Guggenheim Memorial Foundation Fellowship (1997) and the MacArthur Foundation Fellowship (2012). LÍ teaches at Bard College and lives in Brooklyn, New York.


PRAISE AND REVIEWS

The New York Times: Arts

Holland Cotter

LÍís photographs catch whatís grand about its productive machinery, but also the leveling and scarring created by its relentless attack.

New Yorker

Dennis Zhou

Her photographs function as an act of repair, uncovering subterranean histories in order to witness them anew.

The Art Newspaper

Dale Berning Sawa

The Vietnamese American photographer makes no attempt to simplify the unbearably complex, and pits individual agency against huge geopolitical forces.

Aesthetica

Jennifer Sauer

Throughout, LÍís representations suggest an organic and spiritual continuity, eschewing what is linear for what is truly representational.

Aruna D'Souza

War is the very condition of life in the US, LÍ clearly demonstratesóso normalized that the decision to enter into the next one gets easier and easier to make.

British Journal of Photography

Ravi Ghosh

Uses photography to highlight the self-delusions and raw power of a militarised American state Ė and on perceptions of Vietnam today.

New York Review of Books

Jessie Kindig

The photographer An-My LÍ uses the tools of the imperial eye to assemble an anti-imperial aesthetic.
