Nostalgia for a Time That Never Was is a multi-venue exhibition by visual artist Phuong Ngo.

The exhibition deals directly with the colonial legacy of French occupied Vietnam, reflecting on the ways in which this history has spanned the globe following The Fall of Saigon.

In unpacking the complexities of colonisation, the exhibition seeks to understand how the formation of French Indochina continues to inform the Vietnamese diaspora, including the ways in which the Vietnamese-Australian community engages with Australia’s (and the West's) imperial, colonial, and racist past and present.

Nostalgia for a Time That Never Was is a multi-venue program presented in partnership with The Substation, Hobsons Bay City Council’s Laneway Gallery and Photo 2022.
