Co-presented by AAA, mMK and supported by HK Museum of Art, this roundtable symposium invited twelve local and mainland art historians and cultural workers to address the issues around the art history of Hong Kong, the accuracy of its telling, and the inclusion of local voices in its documentation. The roundtable symposium aimed to encourage not just dialogues and discussion among artists, art writers, curators and scholars, but also conversations with the public on the above issues.
