Hong Kong Talks

 

In conjunction with our participation in the Venice Biennale, M+ will host a series of talks in Hong Kong intended to enhance the public’s understanding of this important event. Aimed at artists and curators, art students and other interested members of the public, the series will kick off with a talk on the history, importance and defining characteristics of the Venice Biennale. The second talk will extend the discussion to the broader biennial phenomenon, and the concept of curating within this context. And finally, there will be sharing sessions with current and previous Hong Kong participants in the Venice Biennale, as a way to summarise the experience and gather thoughts for future participation.

    What Do We Talk about When We Talk about Pavilions:
    A History of the Venice Biennale

    Speaker:
    Federica Martini
    Language:
    English, with Cantonese simultaneous interpretation

    Federica Martini is a curator and art historian with a research focus on the history of contemporary art biennials. At a time when almost two hundred biennials are active in the world, the exception of the Venice exhibition lies in the national pavilion system and in the trans-disciplinary reflection emerged in the 1930s and 1980s. Following the expansion of the Venice Biennale from the original Palazzo delle Esposizioni into the national pavilions in the Giardini, Martini will retrace the exhibition path from fin-de-siècle internationalism to the globalization of the contemporary art system. The talk will interrogate representations of national discourses and moments of institutional critique in contemporary large-scale exhibitions, with a focus on the shifts and changes of paradigm at the Venice Biennale.

    The Curatorial Constellation:
    The Impact of Biennials, Durational Approaches to Curatorial Practice and Co-Habitational Time

    Speaker:
    Paul O’Neill
    Language:
    English, with Cantonese simultaneous interpretation

    Paul O’Neill is a curator, writer and educator based in Bristol, UK, and New York; he has written extensively on curating, biennial culture and exhibition-making etc. In his talk, O’Neill will examine the emergence of a discursive field relating to biennial curating and the implied impacts. A “durational” processes to public art curating and commissioning have emerged as an alternative to nomadic, itinerant and short-term approaches in recent years; by looking at such phenomenon, O’Neill will explore how “the curatorial” can be conceived of as a constellation, resisting the stasis of the curator-artist-spectator triumvirate and supporting more semi-autonomous and self-determined aesthetic and discursive forms of practice.

    Hong Kong has been participating in the Venice Biennale since 1999 (the 49th Biennale). Previous participants are invited to share their experience of representing Hong Kong in the Venice Biennale. Covering topics such as the curatorial strategies deployed, the challenges of the biennale format for artists and curators, issues of cultural identity and the politics of representation against a national pavilion structure, this event aims to offer a first-hand overview of Hong Kong’s past exhibition in Venice and inform future participation. These issues will be explored during two panel discussions, where curators and artists will share their different perspectives.

    Bringing ‘You (you).’ to Venice

    Speakers:
    Lars Nittve, Yung Ma, Lee Kit
    Language:
    Cantonese and English, simultaneous interpretation will be provided

    In the last of the series, M+ Venice Biennale curatorial team will be joined by the artist, Lee Kit, to share their experience of this year’s Hong Kong participation, and also to give an overview of this year’s Biennale. The talk will cover the process of preparation, the reception and the introduction of the show in Venice. At the same time, they will be sharing their insight on the shifting notion of cultural representation and individual participation with regard to the pavilion format. We hope this series of talks will set the framework that facilitates a deeper understanding of some of the relevant issues surrounding the Venice Biennale and large scale international exhibitions, particularly for those who might participate or visit the Biennale, and other such events around the globe.

    • No Compromising Allowed

      One thing I can say about being a mother no two days are ever alike. A day as a mother brings happiness, joy,bobbleheads, tears, discipline, but most of all in it brings love. We mothers must be well prepared for each day. We must keep our minds and eyes open to changes and adversities that may happen. That is why it is so vital to apply the Word of God to our lives daily, so we can be equipped parents to raise children who will live productive lives. As a mother and wife, there are times when I feel like “hey” I need a raise! If mothers were paid a salary for every position we hold, we would all be millionaires. Think about your days; you are a teacher, doctor,Custom bobbleheads, lawyer, taxi driver,Custom bobbleheads 93, vet, and volunteer.

      The list goes on and on. We must be proud of being mothers, and be the best we can. The impact we have on our children is priceless! Even through the trying times of teen years, as we emmerse ourselves in the Word of God, seek true counsel and prayer, we can be victorious. Pretty soon we will look back at it and say,bobbleheads 57,Boy we made it!As a mother, I must say, “I do love it”! Certain things have to be cultivated in our lives,bobbleheads 71, but each and every mother has the God given potential to be a great mother. Proverbs 31:11 12, The heart of her husband safely trusts her; So he will have no lack of gain. She does him good and no evil, all the days of her lifevs.15 She also rises while it is yet night, and provides food for her householdvs. 28 Her children rise up and call her blessed; Her husband also, and he praises her. Most women can give birth to children, but how many can be called a “Great Mother?” When a woman becomes a mother, her life totally changes. To be there for your children is such a rewarding taskProverbs 22:6 Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart. One important point I must make is whatever way we train our children that is the way they will go! Very important not to compromise when it comes to training your children. Always be willing to change. Each year you should grow, incorporate something different that wasn’t there previously. Never let condemnation set in our lives. We do make mistakes in training our children, one thing I must add as we abide are instructed by the word of God we cannot fail. I see many teenagers that have no sense of direction and no sense of real love. Some parents have made the choice of having a career,Personalized Bobbleheads, money, education and other luxuries over their skills in parenting. There’s nothing wrong with any of these things, but our children should not be compromised. A lot of our children are basically left to fend for themselves, because of the choices their parents make. Because of the desire I have to see mothers be able to bring income into their home, while spending quality time with their family, “A Christian Mothers Guide” was birthed. I spend valuable time searching to offer quality to those interested in a serious change in their lives. I want to save others the trouble and time I encountered at one time looking for a legitimate work at home job. Not only will you receive inspiration for living successfully; you will find legitimate work at home resources to help you on your way. It’s time to get back to the basics in parenting, so our children will not become menaces to society.
