太平天國/Taiping Tianguo, A History of Possible Encounters: Ai Weiwei, Frog King Kwok, Tehching Hsieh, and Martin Wong in New York opens at the NUS Museum on Saturday, 7 September with a Curator’s Talk by Cosmin Costinas, Executive Director/Curator, Para Site, Hong Kong at 7pm.

Please RSVP to museum@nus.edu.sg

Taiping Tianguo explores actual and concrete, as well as tenuous or even possibly non-existing connections between four artists in New York in the heady years of 1980s and the early 1990s. The travelling exhibition, which opened at Para Site, Hong Kong in May 2012, began as a series of questions. How did these four artists end up in New York from the 1980s to the early 1990s? Did they know one another? What new lessons might we learn about the storied time and place of art history and also about the divergent practices of these well-known figures by considering them together?

太平天國/Taiping Tianguo, A History of Possible Encounters: Ai Weiwei, Frog King Kwok, Tehching Hsieh, and Martin Wong in New York was first shown at Para Site, Hong Kong, from May to August 2012. The project is co-organised by the curatorial initiative A Future Museum for China and Para Site, Hong Kong. The current iteration of the exhibition is co-organised by Para Site, Hong Kong and NUS Museum, and is presented by the Robert H. N. Ho Family Foundation.
