NARI WARD TO EXHIBIT IN HONG KONG

 

Jamaican Nari Ward and South African artist Robin Rhode are having a joint exhibition in Hong Kong through June 18th.

Both artists often explore politics, history and identity in their work. The New York-based Ward is best known for his sculptural installations made from found objects such as baby strollers, television sets, bottles and shopping carts that tackle big social and political questions about race, poverty and consumerism. The Berlin-based Rhode works in photography, video and sculpture.
