for a five-month fellowship to observe independent arts initiatives and explore participatory and community engagement approaches in the U.S.
No Cause for Alarm, an exhibition that brings together the work of eleven artists from Taiwan, Hong Kong and China, includes artworks in the form of mixed-media installation, video and performance. Kwok Ying, Tang Kwok Hin, Huang Yen-Ying and Song Ta are all ACC grantees.
From Longing to Belonging is an on-going exchange project between Hong Kong and Gdańsk. The first part of the exhibition took place in ŁAZNIA Centre for Contemporary Art in 2014. Due to their complex political histories, people in Hong Kong and Gdańsk have a mixed emotional feeling towards their country. We hope to explore the sense of belonging with its rich historical and political background, straddling along a national and emotional state of mind, while finding narrative through various artists' works. The exhibition provides an opportunity for us to understand the complicity of the state of mind through going into the artists’ stories, and be more aware of what's happening around us.
LOOK/17 presents a unique opportunity for trans-global sharing of images and ideas. Working with Hong Kong based curator Ying Kwok, the festival will focus on exchange with China, welcoming Chinese photographers to our city, and exploring images taken in Hong Kong and Liverpool – cities with a long history of exchange.
