An exhibition of land-related art projects by five artists generated in Hong Kong over the past ten years, LAND VISIONS: In Search of Land Art in Hong Kong explores these artist's response to Hong Kong's unique development context of the 21st century.
Conceived as an exhibition and aimed at emulating the experience of a studio visit on a communal scale, FIELD MEETING Take 5: Thinking Projects is once again meticulously curated to explore art as a journey of ideas through timely staging of extraordinary people, their creative process and research. Creating a performative and experimental realm, the program commissions over 25 of today’s outstanding creative personalities from Asia and beyond to embody their work through newly conceived performances, lecture-performances, and lively discussions in the presence of an exclusive audience of New York- & US-based curators, scholars, and museum directors.
