Must Attend – Ai Weiwei and Vito Acconci talk April 12 in HK

Asia Art Archive and Para/Site Art Space present a talk on April 12 with Ai Weiwei and Vito Acconci. Both artists gained early recognition in their respective careers for their daring stunts in the art world. Ai was part of a key movement of avant-garde artists who were active during contemporary art’s beginnings in China, while Acconci was at the forefront of early developments in video and performance art in the US. The artists will discuss their work, share their experiences in fighting against convention, and discuss their recent collaborative project in Hong Kong - which will result in an exhibition at Para/Site Art Space. Should be really exciting. Check Para/Site’s website for further details:
