6.00 – 7.30pm, at Art Exchange
Self-taught photographer Suki Mok will join academics from the University of Essex to discuss how art can be a political force.
Suki Mok’s immersive images of protests quietly insist on revealing the ideas and motivations behind the civil disobedience organisation that became known as the Umbrella Movement.
The talk will expand on the themes and ideas that have influenced Suki through conversation with Gavin Grindon (School of Philosophy and Art History) whose interests include activist art and institutional critique and its futures, and Carlos Gigoux (Centre of Migration Studies) whose research includes the role of social movements in advancing migrants rights.
This talk will be moderated by one of the ‘(In) Tension: One Country, Two Systems’ exhibition curators, Kayo Lu.
Admission is free and complimentary refreshments will be served.
