In addition, Chang was also involved in the writing, translation, and editing of multiple publications.

We look forward to the exciting new projects Chang will be developing at Para Site as Curator going forward.

Anqi Li has been appointed as our new Curator of Education and Public Programmes. Before joining Para Site, Anqi was a Fellow at the Division of Academic and Public Programs at the Harvard Art Museums, where she developed diverse approaches to museum experiences for audience of all ages. She has held positions at the Hammer Museum in Los Angeles; San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, where she participated in organising the traveling exhibition Art and China after 1989: Theater of the World; and the Chinese Culture Center of San Francisco, where she helped establish and oversaw the Chinatown alternative space 41 Ross. She holds a bachelor’s degree from San Francisco Art Institute and a master’s degree from Harvard University in Arts in Education.

We are excited for Anqi‘s new role in the team as Para Site continues to expand its educational and public programmes to reach wider audiences and to strengthen our commitment to a critical public sphere in Hong Kong and internationally.
