你想要個中文名嗎?Would you like a Chinese Name?

 | 5.30-6.30pm
Michelle Wong & Vivian Poon, Asia Art Archive
Featuring Chinese calligrapher Chui Pui Chee

Getting a name is no simple process, especially if it is one that is in another language that can be used in contexts different from your own. (There are plenty of examples of names gone wrong.) A good name ought to reflect one’s personality, work ethos, and sensibility; one never knows when a name might open doors to opportunities (especially in the art world). 

We invite you to join us for a conversation, which would hopefully yield a Chinese name that can be useful at least for the duration of your stay in Hong Kong this time around. 

Sessions are limited. Please email michelle@aaa.org.hk to book your session.

In the absence of a strong network of independent non-profit organisations focusing on contemporary art, hybrid platforms offer critical support for emerging practice and curatorial experimentation. These hybrid platforms take many forms, from commercial galleries  pioneering experimental exhibitions and research initiatives to real estate ventures that provide private space for public exhibitions. Where did this hybrid model come from? What urgencies did it respond to? Is it still relevant today? This session will consider the work of Hans van Dijk, whose research, archiving and promotional efforts provide an early example of the hybrid model, and compare this with other pioneers in the field in China and elsewhere.

This discussion round will look at the role and function of artist or artist-driven publications, both in print and online, at art criticism, and more generally at the function and present state of critical discursive platforms. Participants will look at case studies and examples before debating issues related to individual experiences within the Hong Kong art world and beyond. The event was organised around the Burger Collection publication Torrent n°2, and its special Hong Kong supplement Silver Silence/Golden Speech, conversational meetings by Hong Kong artists and cultural practitioners. In its print version, Silver Silence/Golden Speech contains transcripts of conversations realised by five groups of artists from Hong Kong involved in the exhibition and research project ‘I Think It Rains’ (exh. Burger Collection, curated by Daniel Kurjakovic, Hong Kong 2013). The conversations deal, amongst other topics, with the autonomy of artistic practice, ethics and morality in the visual arts field, and cultural policy.
