"Love Art at The Peninsula 2016" Presents Conrad Shawcross in conversation with the Royal Academy of Arts

A thought-provoking installation by pioneering British artist Conrad Shawcross RA will be presented by The Peninsula Hong Kong. Shawcross’ The ADA Project combines the tenets of sculpture, robotics and music to create a unique and dramatic visual performance that will be on show in The Peninsula’s iconic Lobby from 22 March to 5 April. Timed to coincide with the fourth edition of Art Basel Hong Kong, the installation marks the latest chapter in the “Love Art at The Peninsula ” initiative, the hotel’s groundbreaking programme of exhibitions and events that celebrate creativity in all its forms, most notably with the commitment to public art.

This talk sees Artistic Director of the Royal Academy of Arts, Tim Marlow, in conversation with Conrad Shawcross RA, to discuss Shawcross’ remarkable career as a conceptual artist and his trajectory as the Royal Academy’s youngest Royal Academician. Details as follows:
