For the 5th year in a row as ART HK's official education partner, Asia Art Archive presents Backroom Conversations, a series of discussions in which leading experts and practitioners in the contemporary art field consider key issues affecting the art world. For the second year, the ‘AAA Burger Collection Keynote Lecture’ honours a significant voice in the field today and ‘Open Platform’ selects projects from around the world that demand to be heard. 

Artists Through the Lens

The camera lens plays a crucial role in contemporary art. In three conversations, three multi-disciplinary artists whose work encompasses different media and subject-matter—Cao Fei from China, Chen Chieh-jen from Taiwan, and Tam Wai Ping from Hong Kong—will discuss the way lens-based media functions in their practices and the decision making processes involved.
