Known world over for his unabashed and ever evolving approach to curation, the theatre actor, artist and writer talks about his mission to connect contemporary art with everyday life
The best things in life happen by chance. And there’s no one better than Khairuddin Hori to embody this sentiment. His first encounter with art was watching his sister perform on stage.
