Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) Hong Kong is pleased to host an Artist Talk with internationally acclaimed artist José Parlá, and Dieter Buchhart, curator of Textures of Memory – an exhibition presented by HOCA Foundation and Ben Brown Fine Arts.
Moderated by curator of HOCA Foundation, Lauren Every-Wortman, the talk offers the Hong Kong audience a comprehensive insight into Parlá’s output ranging from urban art to his abstract palimpsest paintings. Dedicated to supporting art and cultural development in Hong Kong and nurturing the next generation of artists, SCAD Hong Kong is honored to host artist José Parlá, who is a SCAD alumni and a critically acclaimed, multidisciplinary artist with extraordinary practices in painting, large-scale murals, photography, video, and sculpture.
Delving into Parlá’s upbringing and artistic practice, the talk will explore the important developments that have contributed to the artist’s distinctive career. Drawing from Textures of Memory, the major exhibition presented by Ben Brown Fine Arts and HOCA Foundation, the Artist Talk will focus on three major topics; Time, Movement, and Texture.
The new series of paintings and sculptures that have been inspired by the artist’s recurring visits to Hong Kong over the years, and his most representative works will be introduced during the event. The talk will be followed by a special book signing of the “Textures of Memory”, a new catalogue of the artist’s work, published specifically for the exhibition.
