Join us virtually Tuesday, March 30, at 5:00 P.M EST as artist Christopher K. Ho talks about his life and work with MOCA Curator Herb Tam. This conversation is part of the series Curators in Conversation, where we learn about how curators, artists, and cultural producers in the Chinese and Asian American community approach their work. Christopher will discuss his upbringing, early interests in art, his relationship to Hong Kong, art pedagogy, and recent projects, including the book Best! Letters from Asian Americans in the Arts which he edited with Daisy Nam.

Christopher K. Ho (何恩懷; b. Hong Kong) is a speculative artist based in New York, Hong Kong, and Telluride, Colorado. He is known for materially exquisite objects that draw from learned material about, and lived encounters with, power and otherness in an unevenly decolonized, increasingly networked world. He has exhibited at, among other venues, the Bronx Museum, the Brooklyn Academy of Music, UCCA Beijing, Asia Society Hong Kong, the Guangdong Times Museum, ParaSite, Storm King, the Queens Museum, the Incheon Biennale, and the Busan  Biennale. He is currently editing an anthology with curator Daisy Nam titled Best! Letters from Asian Americans in the arts. The New York Times, South China Morning Post, Artforum, Art Asia Pacific, Yishu, Frieze, LEAP, RanDian, Art in America, Modern Painters, Hyperallergic, and Art Review have featured his work.

MOCA has not skipped a beat since its temporary closure in March 2020. We’ve been converting our programs to online offerings and creating new digital content through multiple platforms, always free of charge—because history matters. We are facing tremendous financial losses due to COVID-19. We hope you’ll consider making a gift to become part of a continuing lifeline for MOCA. No amount is too little and we greatly appreciate your generosity. Your contribution helps sustain our beloved institution and supports the creation of new, online programming that will bring comfort and inspiration to more communities.
