We are thrilled to announce the launch of the Para Site Silver Jubilee Auction, featuring over 70 lots 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.
2021 has presented continuous challenges on multiple levels. In this difficult year, we cannot help but be reminded of Para Site’s beginning as a self-organised space for artists in a period of uncertainty 25 years ago as Hong Kong prepared for its handover. It is more pertinent than ever that we see art’s unique power to bring communities together, to foster dialogue, and to imagine a better tomorrow. For this, we are extremely grateful and humbled by the support we have received from artists, galleries, and individuals in Hong Kong and beyond, who all believe passionately in art’s future and in the need for the places that nurture it to continue thriving.
The artworks are available for bidding online at www.ps25auction.com and for viewing in person at our auction preview at 22/F, Soho House between 18 and 23 November 2021 from 12 to 8pm, with an opening reception on 17 November 2021 from 6:30 to 8:30pm. The Silver Jubilee Auction consists of live lots and silent lots. Silent lots are available for online bidding until 11:30pm HKT on 25 November 2021. Online bids for live auction items will close at 6pm HKT on 24 November 2021.
