Matthew Brannon: Concerning Vietnam

Text by Matthew Brannon, Veronica Roberts. Interview with Mark Atwood Lawrence.

Matthew Brannon: Concerning Vietnam

“Brannon offers us a different perspective and, just maybe, a higher level of understanding when it comes to this great American disaster story.” –Clive Martin, CNN

New York–based artist Matthew Brannon (born 1971) has spent the past five years exhaustively researching the Vietnam/American War, seeking his own understanding of one of the most pivotal confrontations of the 20th century and translating that research into intricate silkscreen works that collage military documents, maps, logos, memoranda and contemporaneous ephemera.

Concerning Vietnam distills a picture of the war and its ongoing effects in vivid, densely packed images that employ the bold graphic design for which the artist is known. Alongside these works are Brannon’s notes on the objects and situations they depict, constructing a detailed chronology of the war and a complex overview of the consequences of US intervention in Southeast Asia. Designed by Studio LHOOQ in close collaboration with the artist, Concerning Vietnam collects the entire series of prints and texts, with a new essay on the work by curator Veronica Roberts and a conversation between the artist and Vietnam historian Mark Atwood Lawrence.


"Concerning Vietnam: Bell UH-iD Iroquois, Cockpit (II)" (2018) is reproduced from 'Matthew Brannon: Concerning Vietnam.'

PRAISE AND REVIEWS

Artforum

Jan Tumlir

Brannon’s “Concerning Vietnam” has credibly met the genre’s monumental demand—that the artist speak not only of, but also through, a country and its people.

Pop complexity in 'Matthew Brannon: Concerning Vietnam'

Pop complexity in 'Matthew Brannon: Concerning Vietnam'

Matthew Brannon's complex, deceptively pop and eerily retro-timely Concerning Vietnam is "a puzzle about a puzzle," Blanton Museum curator Veronica Roberts writes of this new book on the artist's iconic print series. "To tackle the Vietnam War in a nonpolemical way—to present documents instead of moral denouncements—disrupts our natural desire to quickly assign blame. While the presence of these documents forms its own kind of critique—repudiating the misperception that officials didn't have enough information and intelligence to avert the war—Concerning Vietnam prompts us to be more concerned about the present and future wars than about judging the past."
