Hong Kong Art History Research – Pilot Project
All programmes listed below are free of charge except as otherwise stated. Due to limited seats, participation is accepted on a first-come-first-served basis. Programme is subject to change without prior notice.
In March 2013, the Hong Kong Museum of Art and Asia Art Archive commenced work on the collaborative 'Hong Kong Art History Research - Pilot Project.' This marks the beginning of a long-term endeavour to develop a publicly available resource platform to support art historical research on art in Hong Kong. Building on previous and existing research efforts, this pilot aims to develop a framework for a richer contextual picture of Hong Kong' s art ecology in the 1960-70s.
The Pilot pursues strands of inquiry that include exhibitions, pedagogy, art writing in Chinese and English, and modes of exchange between Hong Kong and other geographies. Centered around a new series of professionally documented interviews that include multiple voices and perspectives, the Pilot has also digitised a selection of materials from the archives of Asia Art Archive, the Hong Kong Museum of Art, and the personal collections of leading arts professionals.
A day of panel discussions was held on 9 November 2013 and it marked the launch of the Pilot Project. Materials digitised under the umbrella of the Pilot Project will be made available for research online in phases.
