Para Site launches PS Paid Studio Visits, a new, free-to-attend, online series of virtual studio visits with a younger generation of Hong Kong artists.
Para Site will pay each artist a studio visit fee along with one-month health insurance coverage to provide support to this vulnerable community during the global pandemic.
At a time when many parts of the economy supporting artists’ livelihoods has ground to a halt for an undefined period of time, Para Site initiates this project as a modest contribution to pay close attention to local artists.
Throughout the next few months, a list of over 60 Hong Kong artists will walk the visitors through their studios and works in different formats including pre-recorded videos, live in-situ visits with Para Site team members, and virtual studio visits via online meeting platforms. During live sessions, colleagues and audience, both local and international, will be invited to attend these artist’s studios. All of the footage will be available on Para Site’s website, Vimeo and Youtube accounts.
Among a growing list of artists, PS Paid Studio Visits will catch up with, and more to be announced shortly. Please stay tuned for detailed updates of the first of these visits.
