In a career that spans his early training as an engineer, Rasheed Araeen is perhaps best known as a pioneer of minimalist sculpture in 1960s Britain and through his work in performance, photography, painting, and sculpture throughout the 1970s to 1990s. For the talk, Araeen discusses his work to give voice to black and Afro-Asian artists within the context of Euro-American Modernism; his role as the founder and editor of academic art journals Black Phoenix, Third Text, and Third Text Asia; and his developing international large-scale projects. A conversation with David Clarke, professor in the Department of Fine Arts, University of Hong Kong, and a Q&A session to follow.
