This week, Ora-Ora speaks with Katie de Tilly from 10 Chancery Lane on the artist Frog King and de Tilly's insight on running and owning her own gallery.
Katie de Tilly arrived in Hong Kong in 1994 when contemporary art from Hong Kong, China and most parts of Asia was yet to come into international focus. With a fervent interest in the historical, social and cultural context as well as the diversity of the Asia-Pacific, she founded 10 Chancery Lane Gallery in 2001. Her first exhibition of Wang Keping opened her eyes to the deep history of Chinese contemporary art that the world knew little about. Ms. de Tilly has been on the board of the Tate Modern Asia Pacific Acquisitions Committee (APAC), as well as the Program Advisory Committee (PAC) of RMIT University School of Art /Hong Kong Art School. She was a founding member and Co-President of the Hong Kong Art Gallery Association (HKAGA) and she is heading the HK Artists Residency Abroad Funding Scheme. She is a Founding Patron of the M+ Patrons. She is the 2019 recipient of the Woman of Influence in Art and Culture awarded by the American Chamber of Commerce.
