Event description
Next Act: Contemporary Art from Hong Kong features works by 10 local artists that respond to the shared history and memory of Hong Kong.

About this Event

Featuring research-based works by 10 local artists, Next Act: Contemporary Art from Hong Kong responds to the shared history and collective memories of Hong Kong. Throughout the creative process, each artist focuses on different research methodologies, including interviews, archival research, and field studies, as a starting point for their inspiration and thinking process. This process is translated into the final works that come with strong visual impact, interactivity, and performative elements. We encourage visitors to engage with the works by opening their senses and imagination to delve into the past with new perspectives, savor the present, and contemplate what the future holds.

Next Act highlights a critical dimension of these creative practices by pivoting away from the conventional perception that art is a sensual form of truth. Instead, the final works make the creation of art a journey of critical thinking. The exhibition also acts as an occasion to explore the limitless possibilities of our arts and cultural programs and offerings at ASHK. Apart from presenting immersive learning experiences, we passionately continue to move forward and provide an inclusive platform that encourages collaboration across different disciplines.
