Prada presents Prada Mode during Art Basel Hong Kong
After the success of the inaugural edition held at Freehand Miami in December 2018, Prada presents Prada Mode Hong Kong, a private club that provides members with a unique experience focusing on contemporary culture. On the occasion of Art Basel Hong Kong, Prada Mode takes over the third floor of Barrak Block of Tai Kwun on March 27 and 28 to present unique content that accompanies the themes and topics presented by the host event. Scheduled events include a special setup of the Prada Invites project — a collaboration with three outstanding architects Cini Boeri, Elizabeth Diller and Kazuyo Sejima who created an original product made of iconic nylon — and Dolls’ House, a photographic installation by Jamie Diamond, curated by Germano Celant and Melissa Harris, that focuses on the intimate interactions of humans with inanimate doll-babies.
As part of the program dedicated to conversations, the Design Trust charity of Hong Kong will host a conversation on “Architectural Activism – Between Heritage and Innovation – HK and Beyond.” Meanwhile, photographer Jamie Diamond will, through the lens of several of her projects, talk about gender, role-playing, surrogacy, the mother-child relationship, and how photography may be used to create personal fictions.
