Rossi & Rossi is delighted to present Heman Chong at UNSCHEDULED booth D09 at Tai Kwun, which will open from 17th June 2020 – 27th June 2020.
The conceptual works of the artist are often located at the intersection between image, performance, situations and writing. As described by MoMA PS1 curator Ruba Katrib, in a 2015 essay published in Flash Art, ‘Chong rarely performs the part of cultural producer straightforwardly; he is generally “all of the above” at any given occasion. Therefore, his activities don’t sit comfortably within the delineated categories that typically comprise the distribution of content. Books, exhibitions, institutions, paintings — all are vehicles for content whose structures come under Chong’s scrutiny’.
Organised in response to these unprecedented times, UNSCHEDULED comes together as a showcase of Hong Kong galleries, organised by Hong Kong Art Gallery Association (HKAGA) and taking place at Tai Kwun as the venue partner.
In light of the cancellation of the March art week, UNSCHEDULED strives to re-energise Hong Kong’s art scene. Neither a traditional art fair, nor a museum exhibition, UNSCHEDULED is a platform for selling and networking that will present solo exhibitions from HKAGA gallery members, with a focus on modern and contemporary art that has a connection to Asia. Upholding Hong Kong’s unique place as the art centre in Asia, UNSCHEDULED’s scope is rooted in a commitment to creativity emerging from the continent.
