About the Walk & Talk

The “Walk & Talk” series is designed to indulge audience with diversified perspectives and opportunities for appreciating exhibited artworks, which are provided by scholars, artists, critics, curators and professional journalists from their personal and subject-matter points of view.

This “Walk & Talk” session is dedicated to sculpture and installation. In terms of their development, sculpture focuses on the shaping of a structure, while installation, created on the basis of conceptual art, pays attention to assembling various parts. However, in today’s context of arts, are these two art forms still strictly following their definitions? In this session, two artists will shed light on the similarities and differences between sculpture and installation.
