Things Hidden by Trinh Mai

Things Hidden by Trinh Mai

Things Hidden by Trinh Mai Trinh Mai is a California-based visual artist who works with a breath of natural, traditional, and inherited media that hold histories of their own. Her current work confronts the fear, injustice, and devastation that has harrowed our communities and our refugee and immigrant families, then and now. Seeking hope within humanity’s consistent struggle in war and hardship, Trinh has worked with numerous humanitarian organizations, including the Friends of Huế Foundation Children's Shelter in Việt Nam and Angkor Hospital for Children in Cambodia, also partnering with the International Rescue Committee to develop creative projects with refugee children. She received the Walker-Ames Fellowship from the University of Washington in 2019, and currently serves as Professional Artist Fellow for the City of Long Beach. With a deep-seeded heart for arts education and engagement, she continues visiting numerous arts and academic institutions, and community organizations nationwide to speak about her art practice and engage communities in creative storytelling, with the desire to help usher us into communal healing and an enduring hope that will help ground us in a fractured world.
