Harrell Fletcher, The American War, 2005
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. After having traveled the United States, Brazil, China, and other countries, it is now part of the Museum of Modern Art’s collection. At the Hammer Museum program, local Vietnamese American immigrants join Harrell Fletcher to reflect on the continuing impact of the war.
