Hong Kong artist to create works for Guggenheim Collection

Hong Kong artist Tsang Kin-wah has been commissioned to create works for the Guggenheim Museum in New York.

The Guggenheim Museum in New York has commissioned Hong Kong artist Tsang Kin-wah to create works for its collection as part of The Robert H. N. Ho Family Foundation Chinese Art Initiative

He joins artists from mainland China and Taiwan who will produce works for a group exhibition opening on November 4. 

An award-winning artist, Mr. Tsang has participated in major international group exhibitions and biennials, creating installations that respond specifically to each space.

Representing Hong Kong at the 2015 Venice Biennale, Mr. Tsang presented “The Infinite Nothing,” a four-part video and sound installation. The fine arts auction house Christie’s billed it as a neat metaphor for the visual and intellectual overload of the Biennale.

Mr. Tsang graduated from the Chinese University of Hong Kong with a fine arts degree. He also has a master’s degree in book arts from Camberwell College of Arts at the London Institute.

The Art Initiative collaborates with artists, scholars and curators from around the world to elevate regional and global histories of modernism and contemporary practices.  This international curatorial program focuses on commissioning major works for the Guggenheim’s collection by artists born in mainland China, Taiwan, Hong Kong or Macao. All works created through the initiative will form The Robert H. N. Ho Family Foundation Collection.
