Vietnam-born, Season 4 artist An-My Lê‘s second solo show at Murray Guy opens this Saturday with Events Ashore, her latest series of photographs shot in coastal waters and regions from Iraq to Antarctica. Evoking 19th century romantic painting to contemporary socio-political landscapes, Lê’s powerful images “examine intersecting themes of scientific exploration, military power, environmental crises, fantasies of empire and the vast ungovernable oceans that connect nations and continents.”

An-My Lê: Events Ashore runs through May 31st. For further information, please visit the Murray Guy gallery website.
