Para Site is pleased to present a panel discussion by artists, moderated by curator and writer , as part of : Two Exhibitions, in which both artists offer a mediation on power through diverging approaches with presentations including newly commissioned works.
This panel discussion will address the politics of art and its relationship to social movements.represent artists from three different generations in Hong Kong, who each endeavour, through their works, to experiment with and to challenge how art can respond to social and political change. In the discussion, the panelists will debate both the precariousness and the potency of art, considering its ability to insert itself into a system, negotiating and manoeuvring from within. This discussion will question how art can act as an agent or tool used to address issues of social concern and as a means of raising awareness within the art world and in civil society. Taking a step further, they will investigate how visual production responds to the implications of political theology.
The discussion will be conducted in Cantonese.
