Fiona Tan: Rise and Fall

This exhibition of photographs and videos by Fiona Tan, who was born in Indonesia in 1966 and now lives in Amsterdam, is the first major presentation of her work in the United States. Tan’s installations deftly meld the past with the present in profoundly evocative works that explore the power of images in constructing memories and histories. Whether drawing on old photographs, seventeenth-century Dutch painting, or nineteenth-century architecture, her conceptual and aesthetic approach adds a compelling dimension to understanding Asian art and culture in the world today.
