Ben Brown Fine Arts Hong Kong is pleased to present Tseng Kwong Chi: East Meets West, Self-portrait series 1979-1989, a comprehensive exhibition of the Hong Kong-born artist’s pioneering body of photographic work. This is the second solo exhibition of Tseng Kwong Chi’s work at the gallery. Tseng Kwong Chi (1950-1990) was not only a photographer but a performance artist, provocateur and documentarian who traversed the globe subversively and playfully exploring notions of cultural identity, perception and the role of the individual amidst iconic and sublime locations of the world. This exhibition brings together the artist’s iconic black and white self-portraits, rare sepia landscapes, and large-scale photographs produced in collaboration with the artist’s estate.

On Wednesday 8 January from 6 – 7pm, Ben Brown Fine Arts will host a talk with Muna Tseng, contemporary choreographer and sister of Tseng Kwong Chi, where she will discuss the Self-portrait series within the context of the exhibition. The talk will take place inside the gallery at 303 Pedder Building and will be free to the public.
