Hong Kong Art History Research Project

Brief overview (-)

In March 2013, Asia Art Archive and the Hong Kong Museum of Art commenced work on the collaborative ‘Hong Kong Art History Research Project.’ This marks the beginning of a long-term endeavour to develop a publicly available resource platform to support art historical research on recent art in Hong Kong. Building on previous and existing research efforts, this Project aims to develop a framework for a richer contextual picture of Hong Kong’ s art ecology in the 1960-70s.
The Project 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 Project 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. Phase II of the Project began in October 2014, making available more materials via this platform.
