Hong Kong Collective Independent Art Spaces Fundraiser

Shop Special Edition Posters Now
#supporthkartspaces #撐本港藝術空間


We are pleased to announce a new fundraiser in support of Hong Kong Collective Independent Art Spaces. In recent weeks, over forty international artists have come together in an initiative entitled 2020Solidarity by Between Bridges project, aimed at helping cultural and music venues, community projects, and other independent spaces around the world that are existentially threatened by the current crisis. The artists designed one special edition poster each, offered on different crowdfunding sites as a reward for donations. In response to this campaign, we have initiated a Hong Kong collective of 17 independent art spaces.

The income from the sale of these posters will be equally split between all of the 17 Hong Kong-based independent art and cultural spaces involved to use as they see necessary for their respective organisations, artists, and communities, in response to the threats created by the current crisis. Our collective response to this international initiative will hopefully be the first step in developing longer-term collaborations and support locally across our institutions.

You can purchase one (or more!) of a selection of these 2020Solidarity special edition posters through Para Site’s shop. All of the sales through our shop will be divided equally between all of the partner institutions listed below. The partner organisations involved have collectively decided to use Para Site’s shop as a platform for these sales, owing to the lower transaction fees charged by the Shopify platform Para Site uses on its website in comparison to a crowdfunding platform.

Each poster will be offered in exchange for a $400HKD contribution and is size A2 (59.4 x 42 cm / 23.4 x 16.5 in). They are produced in an unlimited edition, but only available until 21 June 2020. If you are based in Hong Kong, we suggest that you come and collect them in person at Para Site when they arrive, but if you would prefer to have them delivered, local and international shipping is also available for a small fee. Distribution begins after postal services have returned to normal.

Between Bridges has organised and printed these posters for Hong Kong Collective Independent Art Spaces Fundraiser free of charge, so that we can use the proceeds to support our organisations as necessary to survive these challenging times. Brinks Fine Art Services is supporting the transportation of the posters from Germany to Hong Kong. With thanks to Wolfgang Tillmans, the artists, and Between Bridges.
