This is the catalogue of the Hong Kong Contemporary Art Biennial Awards 2009. Its predecessor, the Hong Kong Art Biennial Exhibition, was first held in 1975. The aim of this competition is to provide an open platform for the exhibition of excellent works of art by Hong Kong artists. The Biennial carries out its mission by surveying the development of the Hong Kong arts scene every two years and exhibiting the latest works of local visual art to the public. From 1975 to 2005, fifteen Biennial Exhibitions were held. Over the past ten years, many independently curated international biennial and triennial exhibitions have been presented around the world. With the aim to distinguish the unique nature and mission of the Hong Kong Art Biennial Exhibition, the event has been renamed Hong Kong Contemporary Art Biennial Awards from 2009. 

With brief artists' biographies and statements. Names of adjudicators are listed under 'Other Practitioners' below.
