In addition to the opening of CX 888 a solo presentation by Christopher K. Ho on 1 September, the artist will co-host two public Happy Hour events with Ingrid Pui Yee Chu and Savannah Gorton as part of F&T's Office Hours programme. During each Happy Hour visitors can share drinks and discuss readings that relate to themes and questions raised by Ho's installation in-progress.
The first Happy Hour programme takes place on 23 August, where guests will have the opportunity to meet Dr. Yuk Wah Chan and collectively discuss Chinese diasporas, reverse migration, and the intersection of nationalism and identity.
