The HKU Museum Society is delighted to organise a guided tour of Spinning East Asia Series I: A Compass in Hand at CHAT. We will be guided by Wang Weiwei, the Curator of Exhibitions and Collections.
Spinning East Asia Series I: A Compass in Hand
The exhibition showcases a selection of typographic designs, interactive and immersive installations, and multi-media works, the exhibition balances the seriousness of the East Asian concerns with a touch of playfulness to curate an alternative cultural experience for its visitors. The first chapter in a series of two, A Compass in Hand seeks to address how the historical, social and ideological landscapes of East Asia are accepted and shaped by various individual and collective forces through the lens of design and textile.
