Ramsey Kellogg Professor in the Arts at Bard College, in conversation with Mark Aronson, Deputy Director and Chief Conservator at the Center; and Chitra Ramalingam, Associate Curator of Photography at the Center. Born in Vietnam in 1960, Lê is a Vietnamese American photographer who lives and works in Brooklyn, New York. Along with her family, Lê fled Vietnam in 1975, the final year of the Vietnam War, and settled in the United States as a political refugee. Her memories of a war-torn country deeply influence her work. Her photographs and films look at the impact, consequences, and representation of war, often framing a tension between the natural landscape and its violent transformation into battlegrounds. This conversation will explore Lê’s artistic practice with a focus on "Fragment II: Restoration of J. M. W. Turner’s 'Port Ruysdael,' Yale Center for British Art, New Haven, Connecticut from Silent General," 2018. This photograph was taken during a visit to the shared conservation studio at the Institute for the Preservation of Cultural Heritage, Yale University West Campus, where it was being restored in 2017. false
