Christopher K. Ho

Hong Kong-born Christopher K. Ho employs diverse formats to explore often-invisible social forces implicating contemporary art. His solo show ‘Demoiselles d’Avignon’ (2013, Y Gallery, NY) refracted Western abstraction through the eyes of a future class of refined Chinese princelings, while ‘Privileged White People’ (2013, Forever & Today, NY) examined the sensibility of artists who grew up during the affluent Clinton presidency. Recent publications include: Golden Age: Perspectives on Abstract Painting (editor); Hirsch EP Rothko’s Hirsch EP Rothko; and The Clinton Crew: Privileged White Art. His solo exhibitions at Winkleman Gallery, NY (2010, 2008); FJORD, Philadelphia (2013); and Galeria EDS, Mexico City (2009) have been reviewed in the New York TimesArt in AmericaModern PaintersArtforum, and ArtReview. He participated in the Incheon Biennial (2009), the Chinese Biennial Beijing (2008), and the Busan Bienniale (2008), and produced site-specific pieces for Storm King (2013) and the Cranbrook Art Museum (2011), where he was the 2010 Critical Studies Fellow. He has additionally taught at Virginia Commonwealth University and at RISD, and is on the board of NURTUREart and Asia Art Archive in America.
