Date: Tues, 10 October 2017

Venue: Delfina Foundation

As part of the public programme Collecting as Practice, we are delighted to host a public conversation with Rudy Tseng, one of our collectors-in-residence, and Pauline J. Yao, Lead Curator of Visual Art at M+ Hong Kong.

In their conversation Tseng and Yao will explore their shared interests in the changes in presentation and consumption of art in Taiwan, China and the broader region, over the last three decades, particularly involving the intersection of the commercialisation of art on an international scale and the burgeoning museum sector.

Rudy is an independent curator and a full-time art collector based in Taipei and actively involved in the international art scene, sitting on several international committees.
