Let’s Chat: Dinh Q. Lê

As part of our Let’s Chat series, we featured Dinh Q. Lê, one of Asia’s most established artists to date. Lê consistently challenges how our memories are recalled with the context in contemporary life; he is known for his large-scale photo-montages, where he weaves photographic strips into a tapestry of images that revolve around the theme of the Vietnam War.


His work is in the collections of Museum of Modern Art, New York; San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; The Hammer Museum, Los Angeles; The Los Angeles County Museum of Art; Portland Art Museum; The Bronx Museum, New York and The Israel Museum, amongst others. Besides being an artist, Lê also co-founded the Vietnam Foundation for the Arts (VNFA) and co-founded San Art, the first not-for-profit contemporary art space and reading room in Ho Chi Minh City.
