"In Conversation Online: Diane Severin Nguyen and Hannah Turpin," December 16 at Carnegie Museum of Art.

The Carnegie Museum of Art will present "In Conversation Online: Diane Severin Nguyen and Hannah Turpin" on December 16.
Join artist Diane Severin Nguyen and Hannah Turpin, Carnegie Museum of Art's Curatorial Assistant for Modern and Contemporary Art and Photography as they discuss Diane Severin Nguyen: Tyrant Star, the museum's latest online exhibition.

Filmed entirely in Ho Chi Minh City, Tyrant Star prompts viewers to consider the social, psychological, and spatial impacts of our time. The stitching together of differently sourced sounds with distinct visual chapters of trash-strewn landscapes, quiet interiors, and fragmented bodies suspend the viewer in an environment of solitude, longing, and uncertainty. The subtle movements highlight the ways our surroundings are alive, swelling with the memories of the past.
Tyrant Star is available online through February 14. The conversation on Deember 16 runs from 6:00 to 7:00 pm and the price is pay-what-you-wish. Those interested should sign up in advance.
