Hmongstory 40 is a joint effort from many people from throughout the state of California. It represents a collaborative that shares a common vision. This exhibition provides a rare and intimate opportunity to connect with the Hmong people. From the past to the present, Hmongstory 40 constructed a narrative that was absent within the Hmong community and to the general public at large.
Traditionally, the Hmong are widely know for their customs, traditions, and tapestry arts. There are numerous books, articles, and stories that have been written about the Hmong people. However, there has never been a complete exhibition organized to illustrate a richer perspective that looked into the Hmong experience. With this exhibition, we hope to achieve these objectives:
Fresno, CA – December 2015
Merced, CA – May 2016
Sacramento, CA – February 2017
