The artist Harrell Fletcher’s exhibition The American War was a photographic re-creation of the entire War Remnants Museum in Ho Chi Minh City, presenting the horrors of the Vietnam War from the Vietnamese government's perspective. The project also included discussions, a website, billboard, and publication. It traveled the United States, Brazil, China, and other countries, and is now part of MoMA’s collection. Fletcher will be joined by Tram Le, associate director of the Viet Stories: Vietnamese American Oral History Project at UC Irvine, to discuss the continuing impact of the war.
