M+’s learning programmes aim to provide unconventional experiences and prompt a sense of wonder. In advance of the opening of the M+ building, we are organising a range of activities to provide educators and students with new resources and opportunities.

Shirley Tse: Stakes and Holders
Hong Kong Exhibition from the 58th Venice Biennale

Exhibition period:
1 July–4 October 2020

Shirley Tse: Stakes and Holders presents sculptural work and installations by the Los Angeles–based Hong Kong artist Shirley Tse. Tse’s site-responsive presentation uses sculpture as a way of thinking to explore contrasting positions, processes, and materials. She works with wood, plastics, and objects such as studio and sports equipment, as well as the techniques of turning on a lathe, 3D printing, and amateur radio transmission. Tse addresses the concepts of agency, negotiation, and connection in a pluralistic world, drawing on both histories and imaginations. The exhibition responds to Shirley Tse: Stakeholders, Hong Kong in Venice, Hong Kong’s presence at the Venice Biennale in 2019.

Public programmes accompanying the exhibition include a conversation with the artist, workshops, and a series of artist- and curator-led tours. Access services can be arranged in advance.
