This publication intends to provide resources for understanding the history of Hong Kong Art during the 1990s. It is concerned more with giving information than with approaching its subject at an analytical level, since the basic facts of recent Hong Kong art history have not yet been made widely accessible.
27 artists are interviewed and featured in this publication, and commentaries on Hong Kong Art of the period are juxtaposed with a chronology of the Hong Kong Art Events (1990-1999).

Writing Hong Kong Art History

Since its inception, AAA has been conducting research and focusing documentation efforts upon the art ecology in Hong Kong, while collecting primary and secondary materials. These endeavours extend to collaborative projects with museums, universities, and individuals holding personal archives. This section highlights materials from the Research and Library Collections, following lines of inquiry such as exhibition history, art pedagogy, art writing in Chinese and English, and modes of exchange between Hong Kong and other geographies.
