Hong Kong has long been the master of reinvention, with a culture of transformation that moves across scales. Activating Hong Kong’s iconic architectures that define a continuously evolving urban landscape, is a vibrant and complex street culture, where life, commerce, industrialism, and innovation intersect. With that in mind, this conversation focuses on the work of artist and designer anothermountainman, who transforms observations of Hong Kong’s urban fabric into graphic and industrial design objects and artworks, to highlight the relationship between art, architecture, and the city.
About the speakers: Stanley Wong (anothermountainman) is an artist, photographer, and designer, who gained international attention with his “red, white, and blue” series at the 51st Venice Biennale in 2005 representing Hong Kong. Wong’s art and design have been exhibited extensively in Hong Kong and overseas.
