Art and Anti-communism

Irvine -- A Ho Chi Minh art show closes in Oakland this weekend.

For this evening's edition of Subversity, we talk with the artist and gallery director about a show of Ho Chi Minh portraits that has again attracted protests among a few diehard Vietnamese Americans.

We chat with C. David Thomas, the artist, who is the first foreigner to win the national art award in Vietnam, and with Geoff Dorn, whose Pacific Bridge gallery in Oakland has been featuring contemporary Southeast Asian art.

The show is one of Subversity's continuing focus as Vietnam commemorates on April 30 its 25th anniversary of the liberation of the south. The show airs from 5-6 p.m. on KUCI, 88.9 fm in Orange County, Calif., and is web-cast simultaneously via
