Ko Sin Tung was born in 1987, and graduated from the Department of Fine Arts of The Chinese University of Hong Kong in 2009. She lives and works in Hong Kong.

Concerned with the elements of urban life from artefacts and construction sites to the semiotics of our contemporary needs and aspirations, Ko Sin Tung creates visual dialogues using a myriad of mediums that challenge our collective values as well as emotional disparities as regards our personal realities. She has been exhibited internationally, including at the The Bunker, Beijing; Hong-gah Museum, Taipei; Tai Kwun Contemporary, Hong Kong; and Centre for Chinese Contemporary Art, Manchester, among other locations. She was awarded the Special Jury Prize of Huayu Youth Award, Pure Art Foundation Grant, and Project Grant (Emerging Artists Scheme) from the Hong Kong Arts Development Council.

Lee received her BA in Hong Kong Studies and Political Theory from the University of Hong Kong in 2017 and MSc in Culture & Society from London School of Economics and Political Science in 2018. She has developed a strong interest in the sociology of art and curatorial practice. Her writings have been presented in The Third International Conference on Popular Culture and Education (Hong Kong, 2017),The Asian Conference on the Social Sciences (Kobe, Japan, 2018) and published in Ming Pao Weekly. After completing a one-year internship programme at M+, she is now the curatorial assistant at Alan Chan Design Company.

Gwen Bautista is an artist, art writer, and independent curator who regularly works with young Filipino artists in developing projects and exhibitions.
