Hong Kong Art History Research Project Phase II: Panel Discussions (Cantonese and English, simultaneous interpretation service provided)
Hong Kong Museum of Art and Asia Art Archive jointly present a day of panel discussions to launch the second phase of the Hong Kong Art History Research Project. Building on previous and current research efforts, including the first phase of the Project in 2013, the second phase continues to develop a richer picture of Hong Kong's art ecology during the 1960–70s. The Project encourages research through collaboration by a process that does not only produce and deepen knowledge, but also circulates material that can generate more complex narratives. Focused around a new series of documented interviews that cover multiple voices and perspectives, the Project has digitised a selection of materials from the archives of the Hong Kong Museum of Art, Asia Art Archive and the personal collections of leading arts professionals.
The Forum will share findings of the research from Phase II. Scholars, experts and artists will come discuss ideas on Hong Kong art history research.
