Shirley Tse: Stakes and Holders presents sculptural work and installations by the Los Angeles–based Hong Kong artist Shirley Tse. Tse’s site-responsive presentation uses sculpture as a way of thinking to explore contrasting processes and materials. She works with wood, plastics, and objects such as studio and sports equipment, as well as the techniques of turning on a lathe, 3D printing, and amateur radio transmission. Tse addresses the concepts of agency, negotiation, and connection in a pluralistic world, drawing on both histories and imaginations. The exhibition responds to Shirley Tse: Stakeholders, Hong Kong in Venice, Hong Kong’s presence at the Venice Biennale in 2019.

Public programmes accompanying the exhibition include a conversation with the artist, workshops, and a series of artist- and curator-led tours. Access services can be arranged in advance.

A selection of products inspired by the work of Shirley Tse is offered at the M+ Shop, as an extension of the concepts presented in the exhibition.
