Charge d’Affaires, a.i. Rachel Cooke met ASEAN AARP resident artist Pham Ha Ninh, who unveiled his latest version of his mixed media artwork “Mother Map” at the 3rd ASEAN Artists Residency Programme’s Artwork Handover Ceremony.

His work has been featured in shows in New York, Singapore, and HCMC — including Hyperallergic, New American Paintings, and ArtandMarket. U.S. Mission to ASEAN and Department of State support Southeast Asian artists who encourage us all to see the world differently, remember the needs of marginalized communities, and serve as advocates for policy reform.
