Hoy Cheong Wong Wednesday, April 18, 2007 Lecture Hall, 7:30pm Malaysia-based artist Wong Hoy Cheong addresses concerns and ideas about identity, location, globalization, and colonialism using popular genre conventions (history books, faux documentary, family photographs, official documents) as well as the allure of unusual materials. His work incorporates drawing, installation, photography, and video as well as natural elements such as sugar, fruit and plants, and cow dung. Wong Hoy Cheong has exhibited widely in Asia, Australia and Europe as well as within Malaysia, including the 50th Venice Biennale (2003), ARS (Kiasma Museum of Contemporary Art, Helsinki, 2001), Cities on the Move (Hayward Gallery, London 1999), and the Asia Pacific Triennial (1996). This spring he’s artist-in-residence as part of the Sally and Don Lucas Artists Programs at Villa Montalvo in Saratoga, CA.
