Boise Art Museum Announces Reflections on Conflict An-My Le: Small Wars
BOISE.- Boise Art Museum (BAM) announces a new exhibition featuring two photographic series by artist An-My Lê, on display November 29, 2008, through March 1, 2009. The exhibition examines two modern military conflicts: the war in Vietnam and the current war in Iraq and Afghanistan. Her series Small Wars (1999-2002) depicts men who spend weekends in the forests of Virginia, reenacting battles from the Vietnam War. 29 Palms (2003-present) documents activities at the military base of the same name, where soldiers train in the California desert before being deployed to Iraq or Afghanistan. These dramatizations of war—one a reenactment, one a rehearsal—allow Lê to create unique imagery that is unexpected, removed, and revealing. Lê was born in Vietnam in 1960 and came to the U.S. as a 15-year-old refugee. She holds a BS and MS from Stanford University and an MFA from Yale University School of Art. Lê received a John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation fellowship in 1997, and her work is held in the collections of the Whitney Museum of American Art, Metropolitan Museum of Art, Museum of Modern Art, New York, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Bibliothèque Nationale in Paris, and Sackler Gallery, The Smithsonian, in Washington, D.C.
