Wong Ping and Samson Young’s upcoming group exhibition ‘One Hand Clapping’ at the Guggenheim Museum, New York will be accompanied by a lecture series event, ‘The Making of One Hand Clapping’. Co-curators Xiaoyu Weng and Hou Hanru deliver short talks contextualizing the exhibition for the third edition of The Robert H.N. Ho Family Foundation Chinese Art Initiative, and Weng moderates a group conversation with exhibiting artists Cao Fei, Duan Jianyu, Lin Yilin, Wong Ping, and Samson Young.
Wong Ping, and Samson Young are two of the five artists commissioned to produce site-specific projects that generate pivotal observations on social conditions in a technologically mediated reality. The commissions will be featured in the group exhibition ‘One Hand Clapping’. The artists in ‘One Hand Clapping’ explore our changing relationship with the future. Produced in both new and traditional mediums—from virtual reality technology to oil on canvas—their commissioned works challenge visions of a global, homogeneous, and technocratic future.
