For the sixth consecutive year, Para Site is working with a group of emerging curators, writers, critics, researchers, and other arts professionals from Hong Kong and abroad, through a series of closed-door workshops and studio visits. As a consequence of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, for the first time the Workshops are being conducted online. Nevertheless, acknowledging the value of face-to-face experiences and of the unscripted in-between moments central to learning, this year’s participants will also be invited to join next year’s workshops, which we hope to be able to organise physically in Hong Kong. The programme is, as ever, designed to provide learning and thinking opportunities, mediated by reputed art practitioners, as well as being a laboratory for experimentation, posing fundamental questions that challenge various models of curatorial practice.
In addition to closed-door workshops, this year also sees each of the participants moderating one of the free-to-attend and open-to-the-public PS Paid Studio Visits taking place over the entire month, with one of the following Hong Kong artists: Head to our YouTube channel to watch more PS Paid Studio Visits.
