Thursday 25 – Monday 29 November 2021
Following critical acclaim in London, Chicago and other cities, Two Meetings and a Funeral by Turner Prize finalist Naeem Mohaiemen comes to Hong Kong from 25–29 November. It explores the intersections between two utopian projects of the 1970s — the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) and the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) — to interrogate the complex political landscape of the Cold War period. Debuted at documenta 14 in 2017, the magisterial three-screen color projection combines photography, archival footage, travels through modernist architectural icons, and conversations with leading political, intellectual, and cultural figures of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries.
NAEEM MOHAIEMEN is Associate Professor of Visual Arts and Concentration Head of Photography of School of the Arts at Columbia University. His Turner Prize nomination in 2018 cited his explorations of “post-colonial identity, migration, exile and refuge”. Mohaiemen has presented his work extensively at exhibitions and film festivals around the world.
