susan pui san lok at Venice Biennale with ICF Diaspora Platform

susan pui san lok has been selected to participate in the 2017 Venice Biennale as part of the ICF Diaspora Platform.

 

Diaspora Platform brings together ten UK-based artists and ten mentors, all from racially and culturally diverse backgrounds and whose work engages with the topic of the diaspora, over the next 22 months. During the length of the project, these practitioners will take part in group forum, mentoring and masterclasses, and will showcase their work in the exhibition Diaspora Platform curated by ICF Director David A. Bailey at the Palazzo Pisani a Santa Marina in Venice from May 13th to November 26th 2017, after which it will be brought to the UK and exhibited locally. This initiative aims to create cross-generational connections and professional development through the practices of mentorship, networking and artistic and discourse production, with the aim of continuing this process in subsequent years around the world. Diaspora Platform is supported by Arts Council England’s International Showcasing Fund.
