The Propeller Group Reception And Artist Talk says
Join Matt Lucero, Tuan Andrew Nguyen, and Phunam Tuc of The Propeller Group for a theatrical screening of their entrancing video "The Living Need Light, the Dead Need Music" (2014; 21 min.) in the CMOA theater. Following the screening, the artists will discuss their work-and connections between the Vietnamese brass band processionals portrayed in the video and New Orleans jazz funerals with special guest Dr. Matt Sakakeeny of Tulane University. Cocktail reception to follow in the Scaife foyer.

The Propeller Group was established in 2006 by Phunam Tuc, Matt Lucero, and Tuan Andrew Nguyen. Based in Ho Chi Minh and Los Angeles, the collective has been the subject of solo exhibitions at Sàn Art and Galerie Quynh, Ho Chi Minh City (2012) and 10 Chancery Lane, Hong Kong (2012).
