Turf Projects presents ‘Little Vietnam’, the first UK solo exhibition by London-born artist Will Pham, continuing his ongoing engagement with British Vietnamese refugee histories.

Will Pham presents new work shot on super 8 film.. Using his parent’s restaurant ‘Little Vietnam’ in South Wimbledon as a space for writing and speaking, Pham’s new work explores his thoughts on family, identity and the nature of charity.

At Turf Projects, the exhibition will evolve with a programme of events and workshops led by Pham. Contributors will undertake a community filmmaking workshop that expands on ideas in the exhibition.

The exhibition and events were made possible with the generous support of the Arts Council England & Croydon Council.
