The first session of the panel discussions jointly presented by Asia Art Archive and Hong Kong Museum of Art to launch the second phase of the Hong Kong Art History Research Project.

Maria Mok, Curator (Modern Art), Hong Kong Museum of Art, and Michelle Wong, Researcher, Asia Art Archive, present updates on the project in the session.


Building on previous and current research efforts, including the first phase in 2013, the Hong Kong Art History Research Project continues to develop a richer picture of Hong Kong’s art ecology during the 1960–70s. The Project encourages research through collaboration by a process that does not only produce knowledge, but also circulates material that can generate more complex narratives.

Focused around a new series of documented interviews that cover multiple voices and perspectives, the Project has digitised a selection of materials from the archives of Asia Art Archive, the Hong Kong Museum of Art, and the personal collections of leading arts professionals.
