Impressions on tour: Kurt Tong at the Regional Cultural Centre, Letterkenny

Tue, 18th Apr, 2017

Exhibition on tour:
Regional Cultural Centre, Letterkenny, Co. Donegal 11 April to 20 May 2017

If you missed Kurt Tong's recent exhibition The Queen, The Chairman and I at Impressions, see the exhibition on tour at the Regional Cultural Centre, Letterkenny, as part of Remote Photo Festival taking place across Donegal.

The Queen, The Chairman and I
is a fascinating journey into the entwined histories of China and the UK, traced through the family history of photographer Kurt Tong.

Described by Tong as a photographic ‘who do you think you are’, The Queen, The Chairman and I was made over four years across three continents. In this multi-stranded saga of love, hope, and tragedy, Tong uncovers family secrets and reveals the impact of political and economic forces on individual people. Drawing on Tong’s Chinese, Hong Kong and British connections, the exhibition combines large-scale photographs, heirloom photographs, rare colour film footage from the 1940s and a contemporary Chinese teahouse installation.

The Queen, The Chairman and I is an Impressions touring exhibition curated by Anne McNeill, to read more about the exhibition click here.
