Experience the making of a silk masterpiece with artist Kenny Nguyen, whose work explores the concept of cultural identity, integration, and displacement. Influenced by his Vietnamese cultural heritage and traditional art, Nguyen also has a background in fashion design, which has shaped his studio practice in creating art, particularly in his use of materials such as silk. For Nguyen, silk not only has a rich cultural history, but it also can be a symbol of exchanging cultures, social class, and beauty.
