Artist Talk: Hong Hong & Megan Craig
Shining Some Glory: Hong Hong’s Dark Segment
Join artists Hong Hong and Megan Craig for a conversation surrounding the exhibition Dark Segment and Craig’s essay commissioned by Real Art Ways. The reception will open at 2:30 PM, with conversation beginning at 3:00 PM. Admission is free, with light refreshments available.
While at Real Art Ways, Visual Arts Coordinator Neil Daigle Orians has worked with both artists in producing solo exhibitions. Commenting on their work, he said, “Hong Hong met Megan Craig at the opening for her 2018 Real Art Ways exhibit Shields. Their connection serves as a beautiful metaphor for how Real Art Ways supports and connects artists, creating community along the way. Craig’s essay is a fantastic exploration in the concepts and impacts Hong’s massive paperworks create. I am excited to hear their conversation and join in.”
