Hung Huang is set to host four leading art experts at the next Intelligence Squared Asia debate on contemporary art

Intelligence Squared Asia

The concept of avant-garde and its influence in the art scene will likely come into play at the Intelligence Squared Asia Debate on May 18, when four leading experts from the art world will debate for and against the motion "Contemporary Art Excludes the 99 Percent" at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre.

Award-winning UK documentary filmmaker and art critic Ben Lewis will team up with Hong Kong-born American artist Paul Chan for the motion, to face off Elizabeth Ann Macgregor, director of Sydney Museum of Contemporary Art and Joseph Kosuth, a pioneer of conceptual and installation art.

Missed the last Intelligence Squared debate on foreign intervention? Here are the event photos.

Chairing the debate is media mogul Hung Huang, who will raise questions such as: whether art biennales and art fairs really platforms for experiment and exchange? Have collectors become the new curators?

We’d also like to hear your thoughts via Facebook or Twitter.

Tickets are available via HK Ticketing.
