Join us virtually on Tuesday, March 30 at 5:00 PM EDT as artist Christopher K. Ho talks about his life and work with Herb Tam, MOCA’s Curator and Director of Exhibitions. This conversation is part of the series Curators in Conversation, where we learn about how curators, artists, and cultural producers in the Chinese and Asian American community approach their work. Christopher will discuss his upbringing, early interests in art, his relationship to Hong Kong, art pedagogy, and recent projects, including the book Best! Letters from Asian Americans in the Arts, which he edited with curator Daisy Nam.
Christopher K. Ho (何恩懷; b. Hong Kong) is a speculative artist based in New York, Hong Kong, and Telluride, Colorado. He is known for materially exquisite objects that draw from learned material about, and lived encounters with, power and otherness in an unevenly decolonized, increasingly networked world. He has exhibited at, among other venues, the Bronx Museum, the Brooklyn Academy of Music, UCCA Beijing, Asia Society Hong Kong, the Guangdong Times Museum, ParaSite, Storm King, the Queens Museum, the Incheon Biennial, and the Busan Bienniale. The New York Times, South China Morning Post, Artforum, Art Asia Pacific, Yishu, Frieze, LEAP, Ran Dian, Art in America, Modern Painters, Hyperallergic, and Art Review have featured his work.
