Organised by the WMA Program and hosted in Para Site’s Education Room, this event includes a talk with Mexican artist collective TRES, winner of the 2014/15 WMA Commission. TRES will make their debut in Hong Kong with a mixed-media exhibition titled Ubiquitous Trash – Hong Kong Edition, which explores the implications between public space and trash.
For this talk, the artists will focus on how the production of most contemporary art is based on complex methodologies. For TRES, collective work, dialogue, displacement, and translation are key elements in building an art project. To contextualise how each of these strategies are used, the artists will discuss the artworks they have produced during the last seven years, where the main concern has been garbage in a material and conceptual sense.
