Out with the old and in with the new. Throughout history, countless people have made sacrifices to become an artist or art worker. When the new generation starts questioning labour conditions and fight for their rights, does that simply mean they’re being spoiled? When you start doubting your career in art, how about reflecting upon art history in Hong Kong and its causes and effects. Wong Ka Ying and Mak2 are both grateful for their artistic journeys, and now that they are older and wiser, they’ve decided to join forces with industry colleagues and the public in a game of Pictionary.

The rules

Two rounds including a qualifying and a final round. A member from each team will hint at the answer by drawing while the other team members try to guess the answer. The answers are all closely associated with the arts and culture sector, such as labour, funding, and copyright. The hosts will share their personal experiences with some of the topics in the game.

About the hosts

Wong Ka Ying

Wong Ka Ying (b. 1990) is an artist and curator based in Hong Kong. She received her BFA from the Chinese University of Hong Kong in 2013 and obtained her M.Phil. Visual Arts from Hong Kong Baptist University in 2021, currently a PhD student in Cultural Studies at the Chinese University of Hong Kong. A keen observer of the art community and society, Wong critically reflects on the various social, cultural, and gender issues today through a wide range of media from performance to social media platform. Wong expresses passion in writing, curating, and art education. She has made appearances in various public sharing, seminars, panel discussion and talks, actively engaging with the communities and art lovers.


Mak2 (b. 1989, Hong Kong) is a conceptual artist. Her work contemplates 21st-century issues through the study of philosophy, art history, culture, shifting socio-political environments, the internet, and new technology. The aesthetic experience she crafts is bound by the dualism of humor and intense inquisitiveness. She creates installations, paintings, drawings, video work, YouTube videos, and stand-up comedy routines.
