Summer comes after spring, Navigating the Dot is organized by the Hong Kong Arts Development Council and produced by the Para Site Collective. After half a year of production time, it was exhibited at the Hong Kong pavilion of Venice Biennale in mid-June. Para Site Collective is composed of artists, cultural workers, designers, architects, educators, art critics, and art administrators. They consult and support each other, a mode of work in which the division of labor is not clear, in which planning and production all happened at the same time. Is this feasible? Can you enjoy a work of art that is not qualitative, without direct intention, can even be used not only to see but also to listen, sleep, and play? Is this inappropriate? What are the strategies for Hong Kong artists who are used to playgrounds to play in international competitions? How do they adjust? The Para Site Collective will go back in time, replay the time of Hong Kong in Venice, with fine narration and sincere reflections, to gather various literati to discuss export cultural affairs.
