Maikue Vang

Maikue Vang works with fibers and textile processes such as embroidery and pleating to address sexual trauma through the narrative of the survivor. She engages viewers with the difficult subject of sexual trauma through the manipulation of form and medium. Her works are autobiographical and are an effort to connect to other survivors through her own experiences. As a Hmong-American artist, she recognizes the lack of communication and knowledge to address sexual trauma in her culture and therefore attempts to create work that will pave the way to discussing the issue in the Hmong community.
