Who’s included in America? Who isn’t? We talk with MyLoan Dinh about it.
When we talk about “the American people,” who is included? Who belongs here?
That’s a pressing topic in the world today. It was also a core question when Charlotte artist MyLoan Dinh spoke on the global topic of “Inclusive” at the April meeting of CreativeMornings/Charlotte. It’s at the heart of an upcoming exhibition at the Elder Gallery May 3-June 15.
MyLoan is one of the artists in We See Heaven Upside Down, migration 4, an international, multi-disciplinary arts project responding to challenges of migration, displacement, and identity in contemporary society.
Gathering in the backyard of her home, Charlotte’s famed “Poet’s Cabin,” MyLoan further explored her talk and her work with Matt Olin, Tim Miner, and her husband, Till Schmidt-Rimpler on the CreativeMornings/Charlotte podcast, produced by Andy Goh.
Hearing is good. Seeing is good, too.
