Program Description 
Fridays, February 5–March 12, 2021, 3–4:15 pm

Facilitated by artist and educator Stephen Kwok in collaboration with a series of guest artists, these workshops invite participants to reimagine digital platforms and the social formats through experimental and experiential exercises. These sessions explore how distance may enable, rather than limit, engagement with our surroundings, ourselves, and each other.

He holds an MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and a BA in business administration from the University of Southern California, Los Angeles. He was an artist-in-residence at Delfina Foundation’s Performance as Process program in London. Kwok has exhibited at Seoul Museum of Art; Surplus Space, Wuhan; Haus der Kulturen der Welt, Berlin; Center for Performance Research, Brooklyn; Julius Caesar Gallery, Chicago; Contemporary Arts Center, New Orleans; and Lawndale Art Center, Houston.
