‘Dancing In Darkness’ By Vinhay Keo

It usually takes years, if it happens at all, for an artist to get a solo show with a gallery. Vinhay Keo had recently graduated from the Kentucky College of Art + Design when Moremen Gallery gave him a solo show. He’s that talented. In his second solo show with the gallery, and part of the Louisville Photo Biennial, Keo focuses on the question, “What does it mean for the traumatized and marginalized bodies to dance?” As one of the marginalized (he’s a gay Cambodian-American), his art manages to be both beautiful and thought-provoking. —Jo Anne Triplett
