As a fringe activity of the 2003 Hong Kong Art Biennial Exhibition, How to See Hong Kong Art was a project organised by 1a Space and the Baptist University to introduce participants to, and to generate discussion of contemporary art in Hong Kong. The present publication features essays written by a few participants as well as by artists and art practitioners who gave talks in the project. With prefaces by Choi Yanchi and the editor, Ivy Ma.
