On 9 November 2013, Asia Art Archive and Hong Kong Museum of Art jointly present a day of panel discussions that mark the soft launch of Hong Kong Art History Research Pilot Project, the beginning of a long-term endeavour to develop a publicly available resource platform to support art historical research. It also aims to develop a framework for building a richer contextual picture of Hong Kong’s art ecology in the 1960s and 70s. In addition to conducting a new series of professionally documented interviews that include multiple voices and perspectives, this pilot project makes available a selection of materials from Hong Kong Museum of Art’s archive, Asia Art Archive’s collection, and valuable personal collections.

This panel invites speakers from different disciplines - from cinema to sociology, literature, and exhibition making - to share approaches and insights. It explores how art history in Hong Kong can be informed by the efforts of other disciplines.
