Hong Kong Art History Research Project
This archive is part of a collaborative ‘Hong Kong Art History Research Project’ between Asia Art Archive and Hong Kong Museum of Art to support art historical research on recent art in Hong Kong. Building on previous and existing research efforts, this project develops a framework for a richer contextual picture of Hong Kong’s art ecology in the 1960–1970s.
This 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. Centred 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.
The Hong Kong Art History Research Project was collaboratively developed by Asia Art Archive and Hong Kong Museum of Art.
