Rob Crosse – artist in residence at Eaton House

Rob Crosse is a residency artist under Both Sides Now V, the fifth edition of a long term project partnered between Videotage (HK) and videoclub (UK) and for the 2019 edition, with Eaton HK in presenting contemporary and historical films and video works from the UK, Hong Kong and China, curated by Isaac Leung and Jamie Wyld.

Both Sides Now V and Eaton HK are co-hosting the residency and co-presenting a public program with a screening and artist conversation by Rob Crosse at Eaton House’s cinema, Kino. Drew on an on-going research about intergenerational desire by Crosse, the screening would explore ideas of duty and care within the power structure of an older / younger relationship with references to past / present historical perspectives. After the screening, Crosse will talk about queer art practices in the artist conversation. Rob Crosse is conducting his research from 1 – 31 March in Hong Kong and staying in Eaton HK’s dedicated residency accommodation.
