 Mo Y. J. Kwok

M.Ed Harvard University · University of Chicago

Mo Kwok is a practicing artist, educator and filmmaker. She studied under Venice Biennale representative, Theaster Gates, and celebrated director Guy Maddin. Mo’s work has been premiered at the Harvard Film Archive and exhibited at The Crossing Gallery, The MV World Odyssey, and The Carpenter Center. Her recent solo show at the Hong  Kong Visual Art Centre features a series of neon-lights, sound sculptures, textile murals, and more.

Mo has successfully gained admission to the Bachelor of Fine Arts programme at Rhode Island School of Design and has attended the selective Maryland Institute College of Art Residency in Tuscany. During her time at Li Po Chun United World College, she scored 7 in Visual Art HL. In this past year, Mo assisted in teaching the Portraits Class at Cambridge Rindge and Latin School where she also supported high school students in preparing their portfolios for college. She also taught as a museum educator at the Harvard Art Museums.

Given her depth experience, Mo not only helped her students develop strong portfolios but also mentored young artists who are interested in pursuing a career in the arts. Whether it be art colleges, high schools or residencies, Mo understands exactly how stressful the process might be given the lack of support from family members or school college counsellors. She is dedicated to helping young artists to pursue careers in the creative industries in Hong Kong.
