Lien Truong at Turner Carroll Gallery, New Mexico, USA: March 29 – April 22, 2019
Lien Truong is participating in the group exhibition “Can’t Lock Me Up: Women Resist Silence” at Turner Carroll Gallery, Santa Fe, New Mexico. The exhibition, featuring work by prominent female artists including Judy Chicago, Hung Liu and Jenny Holzer, presents a stance for feminine power, one that is confident, bold and resilient in the face of adversity.
“One hundred years ago, the 19th Amendment to the United States Constitution was passed. The next year the 19th Amendment was ratified, and American women won their right to vote. Today we can hear masses of men and even some women yelling “Lock her up!” and repeatedly invoking phrases historically used to degrade women such as “witch hunt,” “unhinged,” “low IQ individual” and “nasty.” Our mothers, sisters, wives and daughters are still groped. This story, of course, runs through Washington, D.C., the very place where the 19th Amendment was made the law of the United States. In light of the successes and failures of our republic, as well as governments all over the world, are the voices of women, themselves. They deserve to be heard, they’ve fought for the right to be heard, and we like hearing them!”Share Email
