Sigg Prize 2019 Exhibition

7 Dec, 2019
17 May, 2020
Location: M+ Pavilion, Art Park, West Kowloon Cultural District

The Sigg Prize 2019 Exhibition presents work by the six artists shortlisted for the prize: Hu Xiaoyuan (Born 1977, Harbin, Heilongjiang Province. Lives and works in Beijing), Liang Shuo (Born 1976, Tianjin. Lives and works in Beijing), Lin Yilin (Born 1964, Guangzhou, Guangdong Province. Lives and works in New York), Shen Xin (Born 1990, Chengdu, Sichuan Province. Lives and works in Minneapolis and Amsterdam), Tao Hui (Born 1987, Yunyang, Sichuan Province. Lives and works in Beijing), and Samson Young (Born 1979, Hong Kong. Lives and works in Hong Kong). These artists encompass different generations and geographies and work across a range of mediums, including sculpture, site-specific installation, video, and performance. Their practices articulate clear perspectives on topics that defy easy categorisation, and the work featured in this exhibition addresses pressing questions that resonate across contexts.
