Meet the Team: A Roving Resource for Students
Dicky Yeung, Curatorial Assistant, Learning and Interpretation, answers five questions about his job at M+!
1. What brought you to M+?
I was an intern for The Infinite Nothing, Hong Kong artist Tsang Kin-Wah’s 2015 solo show at the 56th Venice Biennale, co-organised by M+ and Hong Kong Arts Development Council. At the time, I had just quit my job in a local secondary school and thought that no job in the world would suit me. I studied creative media in university, and wanted to work with art and creativity, as well as to build relationships with and among people. I didn’t realise that the job of museum curator could actually be about caring for people—in my mind, this role was mysterious. I likened being a curator to being almost like a PR person, marketing and interacting with the press.
