Truong Tan: AIDS HeART

12 – 28 February 1998

Curator: Melissia Chiu
Artist: Truong Tan (b. Hanoi)

Truong Tan’s arresting lacquer panels and works on rice paper principally deal with gay issues in Vietnam. He poses questions related to the demonisation of gay people in government propaganda as well as the lack of serious health measures against the spread of AIDS. In effect, he questions moral and social attitudes in Vietnam towards gay men and women.
