Making Links: Live event with Kurt Tong

Thursday 19 January 2017, 4.30pm to 6.00pm

In a special event for Impressions Gallery, Hong Kong based artist Kurt Tong makes connections with thread between his heirloom family photographs.

Kurt says “I will use threads to link the moments when my grandfather crossed borders. The barely visible threads represent the fragility of family ties and how easy it can be to loose touch during times of uncertainty. When threads are accidentally broken by visitors, I will use new threads to link up new images, illustrating how family stories change every time they are retold.”

Come along to meet Kurt Tong and find out more about the stories behind The Queen, the Chairman and I at this one off event.

Stay with us after the event for a drinks reception with Kurt Tong and the official launch of Views from China, a special six month programme of exhibitions and events at Impressions, taking a fresh look at Chinese culture and the long standing links between the UK and China.
