Persistent Vestiges will present work created by both Vietnamese and American artists dating from the war-era and the present day. In the main gallery, a site-specific work of hand-printed helicopters by Nancy Spero (b. 1926) and the photocollages Bringing the War Home (1967–1972) by Martha Rosler will be in dialogue with hand-woven photoworks on paper and embroidered drawings on linen by Dinh Q. Le (b. 1968) and works drawn by light on leaves by Binh Danh (b. 1977).
