Christopher K. Ho:The Autobiography of Diaspora
July 8th, 2017 2pm
Through the lens of his extensive art practice, Christopher K. Ho will focus on shifts in contemporary art theory post 1968 to the present as well as identity in a Hong Kong Chinese diasporic perspective. As an artist who was based in the United States in the 1990s who has never worked explicitly with identity, Chris sees his practice turning toward something that could become more akin to identity in the very near future—particularly his autobiographical relationship to the East Asia region.— Hera Chan
Christopher K. Ho (b. Hong Kong 1974) dissects the hidden social forces that implicate contemporary art within capitalist society. He is simultaneously an artist, curator, and critic based in New York and Hong Kong. His solo exhibitions have been reviewed in the New York Times, LEAP, RanDian, Artforum, Art in America, Modern Painters, and ArtReview. He has also written for Modern Painters, Performing Arts Journal, Flash Art and ArtReview, and taught at RISD, Cranbrook Art Academy, and MICA. He is currently at work on an augmented reality project for Art Production Fund that opens in October, and his forthcoming solo show opens at the Bronx Museum in New York in February 2018.
