Hyattsville, MD—For Khánh H. Lê, identity plays a central role in artistic output. Recent refugee crises have made the artist reflect on his personal experience of waiting with his family for permission to come to the United States in the late 80s. Through prints and mixed-media collage, he layers together fragmented memories and images, including photographs of D.C.'s Vietnamese community, to create a new historical narrative...
