This summer, Tai Kwun Contemporary is showcasing two exhibitions that explore themes connected to understanding and limits, respectively.
They Do Not Understand Each Other, co-presented by The National Museum of Art, Osaka and Singapore Art Museum, features works from the two museums as well as new commissions. The exhibition explores understanding, miscommunication, tolerance and representation—seeking to find common ground in the unfamiliar. 19 artists will be on show, hailing from Japan, Singapore, Korea, Puerto Rico, Thailand and beyond. (25 May–13 September)
Taking shape inside the historic F Hall — a former printing facility and women’s prison — My Body Holds Its Shape comprises commissioned works from five artists: Tap Chan, Thea Djordjadze, Jason Dodge, Eisa Jocson and Pratchaya Phinthong. Curated by Xue Tan, the exhibition looks at how existing limits and constraints can emerge as artistic materials and clues for associations, with processes that embrace poetics and live improvisations. (25 May–September)
Covering the hottest new eats, the best places to play, offbeat takes on local culture, and so much more, Localiiz is every Hongkonger’s destination for how to live a well-rounded life in our vibrant city. Why the strange spelling? Well, Localiiz is designed to be your ‘local eyes’—and for that, you need two i’s.
