Metamorphosis or Confrontation at the University Museum and Art Gallery of the University of Hong Kong is Tobias Klein’s most extensive solo exhibition to date on the theme of Digital Craftsmanship. By exploring applications of 3D printing in architecture, art, design and interactive media installations, Klein has created a fusion of contemporary CAD/CAM technologies built from natural materials, found objects and cultural historical references. His works explore the emerging discipline of Digital Craftsmanship as an operational synthesis between digital and physical tools and techniques. Klein taught for more than ten years at the Architectural Association School of Architecture and the Royal College of Art and currently teaches in the School of Creative Media at City University of Hong Kong.

Join the artist and curators Florian Knothe and Harald Kraemer on a tour of the exhibition.

We will also walk through three paintings exhibitions showing the works of Hou Beiren, Wesley Tongson and Chak.

The Detroit-based industrialist Charles Lang Freer (1854-1919) was a pioneering collector of Chinese art in America. His collection laid the foundation of the world-class Chinese holdings at the Smithsonian’s Freer Gallery of Art, the US national museum of Asian art. Why Chinese art? How did he assemble this significant collection? Delving into his diary, purchasing records, and spectacular art collection, Dr. Daisy Yiyou Wang, Deputy Director of the Hong Kong Palace Museum, told stories of Freer as a savvy collector, a fearless adventurer, and a visionary philanthropist. Dr. Wang also shared her new research on Freer’s collecting strategies and the international art market in the early years of the twentieth century.
