Binh Danh: C.A.R.S. Online

curated by:

The artist-curated C.A.R.S. Online series, of which this is the first, features past participants in the long running Critic & Artist Residency Series. Founded in 1997, the series brings prominent artists, critics, and curators to the Colorado State University campus for public lectures, classroom visits, and exhibitions. The new virtual exhibitions bring together the artists’ own work and works from the museum’s collection, shedding new light on familiar objects and drawing out themes and artistic sources in the artist-curator’s works.

Binh Danh holds a special place in the museum’s history. In addition to being a past C.A.R.S. participant, he was the inaugural artist exhibited when the art museum was founded at CSU in 2009. His chlorophyll print photograph Barracked (2005) was also the first (and until recently, only) museum purchase in CSU’s collection, a work acquired with the museum’s own funds. Other upcoming C.A.R.S. Online artist-curators will be Jess Dugan, Mauro Giaconi, Courtney Egan, and Zora Murff, and each exhibition will be on view for (at least) a year.

Binh Danh (MFA Stanford; BFA San Jose State University) emerged as an artist of national importance with work that investigates his Vietnamese heritage and our collective memory of war. His technique incorporates his invention of the chlorophyll printing process, in which photographic images appear embedded in leaves through the action of photosynthesis. His newer body of work focuses on nineteenth-century photographic processes, applying them in an investigation of battlefield landscapes and contemporary memorials. A recent series of daguerreotypes celebrated the United States National Park system during its anniversary year.

His work is in the permanent collections of the National Gallery of Art, the San Francisco Museum of Modern art, The DeYoung Museum, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Center for Creative Photography, the George Eastman Museum, and many others. He received the 2010 Eureka Fellowship from the Fleishhacker Foundation, and in 2012 he was a featured artist at the 18th Biennale of Sydney in Australia. He is represented by Haines Gallery, San Francisco, CA and Lisa Sette Gallery in Phoenix, AZ. He lives and works in San Jose, CA and teaches photography at San Jose State University.

C.A.R.S. Online is made possible in part through a grant from the Lilla B. Morgan Memorial Endowment, which works to enhance the cultural development and atmosphere for the arts at Colorado State University. This fund benefits from the generous support of all those who love the arts. Additional support is provided by the FUNd Endowment at CSU and by Colorado Creative Industries. CCI and its activities are made possible through an annual appropriation from the Colorado General Assembly and federal funds from the National Endowment for the Arts.
