Fear of Ambivalence

In 2012, the black-and-white photograph “Fear of Ambivalence” (2001) was featured as the catalog cover for UC Riverside’s Sweeney Art Gallery exhibit Troubling Borders: Southeast Asian Women in the Diaspora, a showcase containing eight of Julie Thi Underhill’s gelatin silver prints. Curated by Lan Duong and Isabelle Thuy Pelaud, the exhibition ran from June 30 through October 7, and it featured paintings, drawings, photographs, videos and sculptures by seven international contemporary artists—Anida Yoeu Ali, Reanne Estrada, Lin+Lam, Ann Phong, Nalyne Lunati, Hong-An Truong and Julie Thi Underhill. The exhibit accompanied the publication of Troubling Borders: An Anthology of Art and Literature by Southeast Asian Women in the Diaspora, released in 2013 by University of Washington Press.
