M+, Hong Kong’s global museum of contemporary visual culture in the West Kowloon Cultural District, and the Hong Kong Arts Development Council (HKADC) are pleased to announce the selection of Angela Su as the featured artist for Hong Kong’s participation in the 59th International Art Exhibition – La Biennale di Venezia.

The widely recognized Hong Kong-born artist’s solo exhibition will be curated by Freya Chou, an independent curator based in Hong Kong. Both the artist and the guest curator have been jointly selected by M+ and HKADC. The exhibition will be a collateral event to the 2022 edition of La Biennale di Venezia, one of the most important forums for contemporary art in the world, and will be held between 23 April and 27 November 2022.

This marks the fifth collaboration between M+ and HKADC for Hong Kong’s participation in La Biennale di Venezia, following the critically acclaimed solo presentations of Lee Kit in 2013, Tsang Kin-Wah in 2015, Samson Young in 2017, and Shirley Tse in 2019. Angela Su’s exhibition, curated by Freya Chou, will respond to the unique conditions of the Hong Kong exhibition venue, situated in an ideal location near the entrance to the Arsenale, one of the two main sites of the international section of La Biennale di Venezia. This will be the third time that M+ has appointed and engaged a guest curator for the event, following Ying Kwok in 2017 and Christina Li in 2019. For this edition, Ying Kwok will take on the role of Consulting Curator supporting the artist and the guest curator for this project.

As was the case with the four previous collaborations between M+ and HKADC for La Biennale di Venezia, Hong Kong audiences will have the opportunity to see Angela Su’s work following the close of the Venice presentation. An adapted exhibition will be on view in 2023 at M+ in the West Kowloon Cultural District.
