Spring 2022 – CMA seminar

Week 4 -  Zhenhua Li:  Curate without present

Time: 23rd Feb 2022 4:30PM HKT

(Title in Chinese:  远程策展)


I would like to share my project for 2021 in Beijing, Shenzhen and Hong Kong, where I ultimately cannot be present as a live curator ...... The distance and online media involved in projects without an artist or curator should be seen as the new normal, which completely changes the notion of presence online or offline.
