Details:As a teenager, Lor was forced to flee her home country of Laos following the end of the Secret War in Laos and the Vietnam War in 1975. She had begun learning the skills and concepts for creating paj ntaub as a young girl from her mother, and she further developed her craft while living in a refugee camp in Thailand. Since immigrating to Green Bay, Wisconsin in 1984, Mao has created hundreds of textiles which she and her family have sold at art fairs throughout Wisconsin and the Midwest, including the Paine. The exhibition is a reflection on Hmoob paj ntaub. Built through collaboration, it is co-curated by historian Chong Moua and artist Ger Xiong and includes a documentary video by Soua Vang. By centering Mao’s work, and highlighting a new co-created contemporary piece by Lor and Xiong, the exhibit uses Hmoob paj ntaub to ask questions about the past, present, and future of Hmoob art, storytelling, and representation.
