AAA invites you to participate in a weekly Facebook event guest-hosted by Hong Kong–based artist, curator, art critic, and educator Oscar Ho.
Every Monday in July, there will be a new bilingual post by Oscar Ho on AAA’s Facebook page. Ho will discuss key lines of enquiry he explored as part of the exhibitions he curated, such as cultural identity, social inclusion in the arts, and Hong Kong visual culture. The exhibitions featured are highlights from the Oscar Ho Hing Kay Archive. Ho will share trivia and stories around his concepts and experiences, and will respond to questions in the comment box. He will lead and engage each discussion topic for one week (Monday–Friday), and will move on to the next topic the following week.
Links to Ho’s Facebook posts will be uploaded on this page as well. Please stay tuned.
