In Conversation: William Kentridge and Christopher K. Ho 對話: 威廉·肯特里奇與何恩懷

  • Fri 8 April 2022
  • 8 – 9 pm

Johannesburg-based artist William Kentridge, in conversation with Christopher K. Ho, Executive Director of Asia Art Archive, discuss Kentridge’s imagined and real connections to Hong Kong, the importance of forgetting, and the treachery of the proper noun.

‘William Kentridge. Weigh All Tears’, the artist’s first solo exhibition in Hong Kong, is on view at Hauser & Wirth till 29 May. Beginning 1 April, the gallery will be open by appointments only. Please make your reservation at before you visit. You can also see the show online now.

William Kentridge was born in 1955 in Johannesburg, South Africa, where he currently lives and works. In work made over the past five decades, Kentridge has parsed and questioned the historical record — responding to the past as it ineluctably shapes our present – and in doing so, has created a world that mirrors and shadows our own.

Christopher K. Ho is a speculative artist based in Hong Kong. His practice encompasses making, organizing, writing, and teaching. He serves as Executive Director of Asia Art Archive.

The Zoom talk will be conducted in English.
