Luncheon talk with Dr. Pamela Nguyen Corey about “The City in Time: Contemporary Art and Urban Form in Vietnam and Cambodia”

May 12, 2022, 11:30 – 13:00

In the upcoming episode of Fulbright Speakers’ Series: The World Beyond a Book, Fulbright University Vietnam cordially invites you to join an in-person luncheon talk with Dr. Pamela Nguyen Corey on her latest book “The City in Time: Contemporary Art and Urban Form in Vietnam and Cambodia”.  

In “The City in Time”, Pamela N. Corey provides new ways of understanding contemporary artistic practices in a region that continues to linger in international perceptions as perpetually “postwar.” Focusing on art from the last two decades, Corey connects artistic developments with social transformations as reflected through the urban landscapes of Ho Chi Minh City and Phnom Penh. As she argues, artists’ engagements with urban space and form reveal ways of grasping multiple and layered senses and concepts of time, whether aligned with colonialism, postcolonial modernity, communism, or postsocialism.
