Featuring Yeo Workshop Singapore’s solo exhibition of Vietnamese diaspora artist Moi Tran, Tai Kwun Contemporary unveils Trust & Confusion,  an evolving, accumulative exhibition unfolds over several episodes, with more than 20 newly commissioned works from a group of artists; and the recently concluded successful staging of Art Basel Hong Kong 2021 edition.

The exhibition – titled after Maxine Hong Kingston’s 2011 novel – features mixed-media objects and documentation of live performance art, drawing on Tran’s lived experience as a Vietnamese refugee, alongside her continued engagement with diaspora visibility and nurturing critical knowledge sharing.

The mise en scene is framed by red velvet curtains and invites the anticipation of a shared theatrical contact zone between artist and viewer. Video and interactive objects suspend, as though characters and props, ready to perform. As a person of the Vietnamese diaspora and a Southeast Asian female artist, the work is representative of the artist’s diverse methodology to center the embodied knowledge of marginalized spaces. Her exhibition highlights the power of co-learning through art and social practice and possibilities in a pluriversal future.

Exhibition dates: 15 May – 3 July 2021.

  • Tai Kwun Contemporary Unveils Trust & Confusion

Tai Kwun Contemporary is pleased to announce a new group exhibition trust & confusion, running from 5 May to 5 December 2021.

Curated by Xue Tan, Senior Curator at Tai Kwun, and renowned international curator Raimundas Malašauskas, trust & confusion is an evolving, accumulative exhibition that unfolds over several episodes on-site and online.

‘trust & confusion’

trust & confusion is about the conversation of certainty and chance; the transformative power of bodies, intangibles, and ephemeral encounters; music and magic; and the luck of being alive, with all the concerns that come with it.

This exhibition is an invitation to observe how things emerge in relation to each other—sounds, gestures, smells, identities—and to be a part of it, being surprised and giving attention to your inner landscape while a spectacle is taking place around you.

Running in parallel to the physical show, ‘Art Basel Live: Hong Kong’, brought the experience of the fair to audiences around the world through a rich digital program featuring Online Viewing Rooms, public and VIP walkthroughs live-streamed from the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Center, as well as daily broadcasts and virtual experiences.

The 2021 edition of the fair featured a strong line-up of 104 galleries from across Hong Kong and overseas, many of whom opted to participate with a satellite booth, a new concept introduced to support gallerists whose physical attendance in Hong Kong was not possible due to current regulations. Exhibitors amplified their on-site participation with complementary presentations in the Online Viewing Rooms, connecting with patrons and audiences worldwide.
