On the occasion of the 10th anniversary of the Handover 1a space and AAA are pleased to present 'Talkover/Handover – Dialogues on Hong Kong art 10 years after 1997', a research and exhibition project of collaborative works by twenty-three of Hong Kong’s most active artists in the last decade.
'Talkover/Handover' takes as its starting point a research project on Hong Kong art from 1997 to the present. Twenty-three Hong Kong artists, some active during 1997 and others active today, were paired up and asked to interview one another on issues surrounding the Handover. Artworks created as a culmination of these dialogues will be presented by 1a space in an exhibition showcasing a range of media, including video, photography, and installation.
The exhibition, 'Talkover/Handover', will be accompanied by supporting research materials and documentation compiled by AAA’s Researcher for Hong Kong, wen yau. Other members of the art community are invited to share their thoughts on Hong Kong art and culture after 1997 in a roundtable discussion on 14 July.
