Vietnam: A Nation not a War

30 January 2015 - 26 April 2015 , 10:00 to 17:00
Dennyson Stoddart Gallery

This exhibition mixes historic and contemporary objects from Vietnam with contemporary works by British artist Anthony Key to explore national identity, migration, cultural diversity, faith and belonging in Vietnam.

Building on research currently being undertaken at Durham University, the exhibition looks beyond stereotypes and familiar associations with the Vietnam War to bring the Vietnamese nation and its diverse ethnic groups to life.
