Wong Binghao

C-MAP Asia Fellow

Wong Binghao enjoys communicating between contexts and mediating art to diverse publics. They eclectically constellate ideas, scenes, art, and writing as a gesture towards ethical and expansive cultural work. This practice currently takes the form of a series of publications (Indifferent Idols 2018, nominal bliss 2019, and forthcoming 2021) that attempts to generate contextually specific, conceptually capacious, and emotionally available readings of art. Wong writes for artist books, exhibition catalogues, and specialist publications including Artforum, Frieze, Leap, Textwork Fondation d’entreprise Pernod Ricard, Philippine Contemporary Art Network, and Southeast of Now. Recently, they served as Evaluator for the 2020 Andy Warhol Foundation Arts Writers Grant and presented their research at Bergen Kunsthall and the Gender in Southeast Asian Art Histories: Art, Digitality, Canon-making? Symposium.
