Dear Friends of Para Site,
We are thrilled to announce the launch of our 2019 Annual Auction, featuring a set of over 90 artworks generously donated to Para Site by artists, galleries, and friends from all over the world. Proceeds from the auction will go directly towards supporting Para Site’s year-round programming, including exhibitions, public events, publications, and educational programmes, both in Hong Kong and beyond.
The annual auction has always been an integral source of support for Para Site, raising a large percentage of our yearly budget that ensures the continuation and development of our work, serving artists and the community. This year, we are committed, more than ever, to our founding mission to providing a home for art as a platform for dialogue and a tool to imagine a better future. Following the success of last year’s auction, some of the most ground-breaking, successful, and internationally recognised exhibitions to date were made possible, including exhibitions that were shown across continents. This stronger and broader global presence directly translates to support for the emerging generation in Hong Kong, resulting in exhibition support, curatorial opportunities, and a platform to showcase their voice and work.
All of the auction lots are now available for viewing and bidding online at www.paddle8.com/auction/para-site. A simple registration allows you to place bids on all of the lots right away.
We would be delighted to have you join us at the Preview Exhibition on 8/F at the new Soho House Hong Kong between 6 – 14 November, 2019. Please join us for the opening Opening Reception on 5 November, 6:30–8:30pm, to get a first look at all of the lots in person.
