Trinh T. Minh-ha. Films.

“The making of each film transforms the way I see myself and the world. Once I start engaging in the process of making a film or in any artistic excursion, I am also embarking upon a journey whose point of arrival is unknown to me.”
—Trinh T. Minh-ha 

Trinh T. Minh-ha. Films. is the first solo exhibition of filmmaker, music composer, anthropologist, feminist and postcolonial theorist Trinh T. Minh-ha in Asia, that is presented in an exhibition space. Five of her films—Forgetting Vietnam (2015), Night Passage (2004), The Fourth Dimension (2001), A Tale of Love (1995) and Shoot for the Contents (1991), filmed over a quarter of a century, in different parts of Asia—are simultaneously on view in the Exhibition Hall. The spatial configuration of five small-scale movie theatres enables the film narratives to interrelate, as the viewer wanders from one theatre to the next, creating a unique physical and temporal experience for each visit.

Presented alongside these five films is her newest work, What about China? (Part I of II, 2020–21), initiated by NTU CCA Singapore, and co-commissioned with Rockbund Art Museum, Shanghai.

Curated by Ute Meta Bauer (Germany/Singapore), Founding Director, NTU CCA Singapore, and Professor, NTU School of Art, Design and Media. Trinh T. Minh-ha (Vietnam/United States) is Professor of Rhetoric and of Gender & Women’s Studies at the University of California, Berkeley.
