Dear Friends, Families and Colleagues,
How’s your summer? For me, this is the first summer, since I was 14 years old, that I didn’t got the chance to go to the beach. I used to skipped classes during my “wonder years” in Hong Kong just to go suntan you have no idea how much I miss my tan lines ;-)
I have been very busy, working on several new art projects and opening our own wine store in our neighborhood (scroll down to the bottom). All in all, this is the shortest and the longest summer I have ever experienced.
Below are parts of what’s happening in the next several months. Hope you all have a great Fall season!
KENNETH TIN-KIN HUNG
ART PLATFORM- Los Angeles, U.S.A.
Thanks to curator Paul Young, my works will be shown in the special program “Artillery Magazine Video Lounge“ at ART PLATFORM Los Angeles this year. Plesae come and check out some of my videos at this Armory Show of the West coast;-)
Artillery: Killer Text on Art, is proud to present the Artillery Magazine Video Lounge curated by Paul Young. Young Projects was founded on the idea of changing the ways in which people think of moving imagery—offering a challenge to the traditional model defined by movies and television, and to see it instead as a concrete art form, much like painting, fine art photography and sculpture. The Artillery Magazine Video Lounge will offer a flexible venue for experimental film artists and contemporary artists alike to explore the medium and push it into new territories.
Opening Preview: Friday, September 30, 2011

MOVING IMAGE London, U.K.
Thanks to my rep Postmasters Gallery, I am going to debut a new video at MOVING IMAGE LONDON. The video is part of the ongoing new series of works about over-consumption, insatiable desire of food, obesity, obsession of quantity vs quality and the guilt that comes with it after you eat a deep-fried donut bacon sandwich. You know there’s always a void in a donut, depends on how you view it philosophically.
Moving Image, an art fair of contemporary video art, will take place October 13-16, 2011, during Frieze Art Fair in London and within short walking distance of the Tate Modern. Located in the Bargehouse in the Oxo Tower Wharf on the South Bank, Moving Image will be free to the public and open Thursday – Saturday, October 13 – 16, 11 am – 8 pm, and on Sunday, October 16, 11 am – 6 pm. An opening reception for Moving Image will take place Thursday, October 13, 6 – 8 pm.
The Moving Image curatorial advisory committee has invited a selection of international commercial galleries and non-profit institutions to present single-channel videos, video sculptures, and other larger video installations. Moving Image has been conceived to offer viewers a unique viewing experience, providing a rich program of time-based work from around the globe by today’s most important and exciting new artists.

Solo Exhibition at GIVON Art Gallery, Tel Aviv, Israel
Shalom! Hats off to Mr. Doron Golan for inviting me for the exhibition. Next year around February or March (more info later) I will have a solo exhibition showcasing most of my video works at Givon Art Gallery in Tel Aviv. I am flabbergasted that I got the opportunity to show at this veteran gallery- they have been around since 1974 and are one of the driving forces for the growth of the vibrant art scene.
The NetCinema Project Room at the Givon Art Gallery is a showcase for artists working with new media technologies, including – but not limited to – digital video, generative, interactive and networked art, computer animation and robotics.
A concern with medium is one key feature of much contemporary work, where form and content often fuse in addressing telecommunications, mass media, the network and digital modes of delivery as well as issues of authorship, copyright and originality.
Practices range from conceptualism through networked video, performance and installation and, often most excitingly, fascinating hybrids of these and more idiosyncratic approaches, including traditional practices placed in new contexts.

THE WINEY NEIGHBOR
OK, enough arts stuff, hold on, actually this can be a permanement art installation! My wife Young and myself are in the process of opening a boutique wine store in our neighborhood- Prospect Heights, Brooklyn. The process so far has been very fun and we are very happy to connect with all the folks who live in the hood. I really missed that small town feeling of walking down the street and greeting neighbors and through the wine store it all actualize. The store is not open yet, we are still in the construction and you can see the progress of our construction here. Also, if you are interested, please “LIKE” us on Facebook and/or follow us on Twitter ;-)
Alrighty! Have a beautiful Fall and Winter and i won’t bother you until it’s time to eat Chinese SzeChuan hot pot!
Love and Peace,
Kenneth Tin-Kin Hung
