Minh Carrico’s new art project going online

Minh Carrico

Minh Carrico is a visual artist known primarily for working in photography, graphic design, and public arts. Their newest work explores live storytelling with never-before-seen photographs. Setup as a four-part series of autobiographical monologues talking about their Asian American experiences while living in Arkansas, Texas, and New York. The segments will be on Zoom from 2:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. on the third Sunday of the month:

Nov. 21, 2021 – Behind the 8 Ball
Dec. 19, 2021 – Lost & Found
Jan. 16, 2022 – Call Me Buddy
Feb. 20, 2022 – Kings to King

Minh put together this series in response to the pandemic and the rise of violence against the Asian Pacific Islanders community. Minh felt it was the right time to share their experiences as an American-born Vietnamese person living in Little Rock, Arkansas during the 1970s. Some of the stories will include things like how Minh accidentally started a business at 21 years of age, Minh’s experience working for Annie Leibovitz, and meeting two governors who each became the President of the United States.

This project is a reflection of Minh’s determination for living an authentic life while experiencing racism wherever they lived, and the opportunities and successes they found in juxtaposition to the discrimination they faced. This project is funded in part by a City of Edmonds Arts Commission One-Time Small Project Grant.
