LEE Kai Chung performs artistic research on historical events, political systems, and ideology. His work addresses the lack of proper governance over the records and forms of historiography. Through research, social participation and engagement, Lee considers the individual gesture as a form of political and artistic transgression, which resonates with existing narratives of history. In 2017, Lee initiated a pentalogy of projects that are under the notion of Displacement and Diaspora. Taking departure from the socio-historical implication under the Pan-Asia context, the series examines human dispersion, material circulation and their geopolitical relations. Lee’s ongoing research project Archive of the People addresses the political standing of documents and archives in the social setting. Lee Kai Chung was awarded Master of Fine Arts from School of Creative Media, City University of Hong Kong in 2014. Lee received The Award for Young Artist (Visual Arts) of Hong Kong Arts Development Awards 2017 from Hong Kong Arts Development Council in 2018. Recent exhibitions and projects include Predicament (2020) (Beijing, China), The Deficit Faction (2019) (Beijing, China), Seoul Mediacity Biennale 2018 (2018) (Seoul, South Korea), 12th Shanghai Biennale: Proregress – Art in an Age of Historical Ambivalence (2018) (Shanghai, China), and  Artist Making Movement – Asian Art Biennial 2015 (2015) (Taichung, Taiwan). 

Akmalia Rizqita, or better known as “Chita” (b. 1996) currently works as the project manager of Rubanah Underground Hub, Jakarta, Indonesia. Since her college days in Bandung, she’s been actively involved in the local art scene by working part time in various art spaces and participated in a number of art projects. Those experiences led her to further interest in arts management, not only as a profession but also a cultural practice.
