The definition of the working class is constantly in flux, and can change according to the individual views and experiences of people from a variety of racial, socioeconomic, generational, and geographical sectors. Despite the gilded concept of the “American Dream,” much of the population fails to ever reach their career and life goals. However, happiness, family, and life are still experienced. This exhibition explores and challenges definitions of the working class and opens a dialogue about America’s class structure.

“Bóng lại cái” is a derogatory term for gay men in the Vietnamese language and translates to “feminine shadow” or “shadow of a girl.” In this collection of self-portraits, Bóng Lại Cái, Sanh Brian Tran takes queer identity out of the shadows, creating characters that satirize constructed archetypes of masculinity and femininity.
Sanh Brian Tran was the first person in his immigrant Vietnamese family to join the ranks of the white-collar worker. He broke his first-generation parents’ hearts by quitting his attorney profession in San Francisco to become a self-taught photographer in rural central Pennsylvania. Influenced by his background, he explores themes of identity and class through fashion and taste culture.

Aaron Hughes an artist, activists/organizer, teacher, and Iraq War veteran, whose work seeks out poetics, connections, and moments of beauty, in order to construct new narratives, connections and meanings out of personal and collective traumas. He uses these narratives to create projects that attempt to deconstruct systems of dehumanization and oppression. In January of 2003 Hughes was pulled out of undergraduate work at the University of Illinois when he received orders to deploy in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom to Kuwait and Iraq as a truck driver with the 1244th Transportation Company Illinois Army National Guard. Hughes received an MFA in Art Theory and Practice from Northwestern University and works with a variety of art, veteran, and activist organizations and projects including: Iraq Veterans Against the War, Warrior Writers Project, Dirty Canteen, National Veterans Art Museum, Justseeds Artists’ Cooperative, and Center for Artistic Activism.
Aaron Hughes has traveled the world with his ongoing Tea Project, which invites viewers to sit, sip, and reflect over a cup of tea, creating a space to ask questions about one’s relationship to the world: a world that’s filled with dehumanization, war, and destruction; a world that is filled with beauty, love, and humanity. Hughes will be an Artist-In-Residence at Lycoming College for a week in February.
