Abstract

This exhibition examines the crucial turning points, new trends and sensibilities in contemporary art in Hong Kong during the 1980s and 1990s. Taking the curator's experiences as a point of departure, the exhibition sheds light on the creative breakthroughs of young local artists in different mediums including installation art, new media and photography, which ushered in the rise of new artistic experimentation and formats. In addition to the showcase of artworks by seven representative artists and artist collectives, the exhibition features a restaging of iconic art spaces of the time, as well as an archival section, re-presenting the significant shifts in Hong Kong's art scene during the era.

Participating artists include Chan Yuk-keung, Choi Yan-chi, May Fung, Ellen Pau, Joseph Fung, the founding members and the 2nd generation of Para/Site (Tsang Tak-ping, Leung Chi-wo, Sara Wong, Patrick Lee, Man Ching-ying, Phoebe, Leung Mee-ping and Leung Po-shan, Anthony), and the co-founders of NuNaHeDuo (Lee Ka-sing, Holly Lee, Patrick Lee, Lau Ching-ping and Wong Kai-yu Blues).
