Talk & Site Visit to Asia Society Hong Kong Center


Asia Society Hong Kong Center (ASHK) is one of the few remaining colonial  remnants of the Victoria Cantonment.  The site was originally built by the British Army in the mid-19th century for explosives and ammunition production and storage. Among the four buildings, three of them are grade one historic buildings. Through conservation, restoration and adaptive re-use, this heritage site was transformed into the hub in Hong Kong and offers a variety of programs.

 

S. Alice Mong became the Executive Director of ASHK in August of 2012.  Prior to ASHK, Ms. Mong was the Director of the Museum of Chinese in America (MOCA) and was responsible for transforming the museum from a New York Chinatown institution to become a leading national museum. She also served as the Executive Director for the Committee of 100 in the United States, a Chinese-American non-profit membership organization founded by architect, I.M. Pei and cellist, Yo-Yo Ma. She is a graduate of the Ohio State University and received her EMBA from Kellogg and Hong Kong University of Science and Technology.
