Shirley Tse: Stakeholders, Hong Kong in Venice
The 58th International Art Exhibition – La Biennale di Venezia

M+ and the Hong Kong Arts Development Council present the exhibition Shirley Tse: Stakeholders, Hong Kong in Venice as the Hong Kong Collateral Event at the 58th International Art Exhibition – La Biennale di Venezia.

The Venice exhibition is a solo presentation of work by Los Angeles–based Hong Kong artist Shirley Tse, curated by Guest Curator Christina Li with Doryun Chong (Deputy Director, Curatorial, and Chief Curator, M+) acting as Consulting Curator. It is a culmination of Tse’s career-long interest in plasticity and in the various meanings and possible interpretations of materials and things. In two installations that respond to the exhibition site and negotiate with its spaces, Tse addresses the complex ways individuals relate to each other in contemporary society. The installations—titled Negotiated Differences and Playcourt—bring together plastics with raw materials, namely wood, and ready-mades such as studio and sports equipment to unravel the histories, imaginations, applications, and technologies embedded within these things.
