"Renée duRocher has taken her place in the Canadian visual arts community through patience and determination. Her exhibition, Diversity and Identity, is inspired by a recent visit to northern Vietnam and the literary work of Vietnamese-born Canadian author Kim Thùy. Diversity and Identity tells the stories of this journey. Rice fields, lush tamarinds, and characters dressed in traditional costumes poetically illustrate her trip. Combined with literary snapshots selected by novelist Kim Thùy, the selected pictorial works are enhanced and focus upon the Vietnamese community."
The exhibition is open from July 30, 2018, through October 27, 2018. The Embassy’s art gallery is located next to the Newseum at 501 Pennsylvania Avenue NW and is open to the public Monday to Friday, 9am-5pm, free of charge.
