Shahzia Sikander (1969 - ) presents her first major solo exhibition in Hong Kong. This body of work explores Hong Kong’s colonial complexity, both historical and current. Installed within the Former Explosives Magazine Compound of Asia Society Hong Kong Center, Shahzia Sikander: Apparatus of Power includes drawings on paper and large-scale animations. The exhibition’s title refers to the potential of an image to communicate in multiple contexts, forms, and formats.

A satellite exhibition is on view at the Hong Kong Maritime Museum from 16 March to 5 June, presenting a selection of Sikander’s work that explores the city’s unique cultural heritage within the global maritime trade. Please visit www.hkmaritimemuseum.org or call (852) 3713 2500 for more details.

The exhibition is curated by Claire Brandon. She holds a Ph.D. in History of Art from the Institute of Fine Arts at New York University. Ashley Nga-sai Wu from Asia Society Hong Kong Center is the Assistant Curator.
