Oil Street

Brief overview (-)

In 2006, an artist practicing in Hong Kong left the city in haste and dropped a box of materials at Asia Art Archive before her departure. The box contained materials on and of the artist village that existed roughly from 1998 to 2000 in the former Government Supplies Department complex on Oil Street, North Point. In 2012, Asia Art Archive took this box of materials as point of departure for a small-scale research project on the Oil Street artist village. This special collection of material consists of documents from the box originally left at AAA, as well as materials generously shared by practitioners that AAA researchers approached in 2012. Click here for a tree diagram of the collection. While a majority of the collection is available online, some materials are continuously being processed and can be retrieved by request.
