Danh Vō will join Hirshhorn curator-at-large Gianni Jetzer to discuss the role that objects can play in defining and interrogating cultural heritage. Vō makes powerful use of fragments—fragments of objects and fragments of stories—to explore issues of self-identity and cultural heritage. His early experiences of fleeing political tensions in Vietnam with his family and assimilating into European culture in Denmark left a lasting impression that form the foundation of his practice.
