A virtual lecture with artist Lien Truong will be held on Thursday, Nov. 19 at 4:30 p.m. on Zoom. Truong’s art practice examines the social and cultural influences that shape belief systems and heritage. Landscapes symbolizing violence and tragedy and significant American icons in the civil rights movement are translated through oil paint and painting on silk. Through a type of blended narrative painting, the work is created through a hybridity of painting materials, techniques and philosophies, embedding in it, the complex cultural histories that mirror the Asian American lens. The lecture is made possible through the Forst Endowed Fine Arts Visiting Artist Program.

Lien Truong is an assistant professor of painting and drawing at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Her work has been included in national and international exhibitions, including the National Portrait Gallery. She has received reviews and mentions in Art Asia Pacific, The San Francisco Chronicle, Houston Chronicle, Oakland Tribune, New American Paintings, and ARTit Japan. Truong is a recipient of a 2019 Joan Mitchell Foundation Painters and Sculptors Grant.
