Para Site Art Space is honoured to present the exhibition FUGUE in the key of UNDERSTANDING. This exhibition is curated by the students of the 09/10 Para/Site Art Space – Hong Kong Jockey Club Curatorial Training Programme. The exhibition’s main theme is “Understanding” while the form is a “Fugue”. Fugue, in music, is based on a single theme to develop multiple voices of layers. The melodies are very different in each voice but ultimately they create a harmonic resonance. In this exhibition, three curators act like three voices in fugue, elaborating on the theme “Understanding” through their individual curatorial interpretations and choices.

The exhibition consists of artworks from Australia, the USA, Chile, Vietnam, Taiwan and Hong Kong. Alvis Choi presents “fiction and fact”, Michelle Lee delivers the message of “understanding and enlightenment through self-realization” while Wong Wing Fung emphasizes on “understanding in communication through words”. 

Para Site Art Space – Hong Kong Jockey Club Curator Training Programme aims to train up several curators specialized in contemporary art every year. Three curators in the 2010 program have diverse background: which ranges from working in the field of media art, creating visual art to art consulting.


The exhibition is curated by Alvis Choi, Michelle Lee and Wong Wing Fung.
