About the Project
Dinh Le’s 1992 poster and postcard project addressed the question of the United States’s accountability toward Vietnam and sought to awaken consciousness of the complex history of U.S./Vietnamese diplomatic relations. Le’s postcard was mailed to ten thousand people nationwide, including George Bush, Bill Clinton, and leading members of the Senate Committee on POW/MIA affairs.
The poster was included in the Here and Now, Now and Then exhibition at The Bronx Council on the Arts and was also posted in public spaces around New York City, Chicago, and Los Angeles. It was distributed throughout southern California by Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions, Beyond Baroque Literary Arts Center, and Santa Barbara Contemporary Arts Forum.
