Revisiting ‘Ten Million Rooms of Yearning. Sex in Hong Kong’ (2014) with Cosmin Costinas & Chantal Wong

Apr 23, 2020
8:00 pm – 9:30 pm

Join curators Cosmin Costinas and Chantal Wong on 23 April at 8pm HKT/1pm GMT/8am EST on Zoom for a retrospective look at Para Site’s 2014 exhibition Ten Million Rooms of Yearning. Sex in Hong Kong.

The multi-venue exhibition looked at the connections between sex, desire and the city’s society and historical conditions. The show explores the ways in which desire is experienced and sex is had, hidden, fantasized, altered, and replaced by various factors: from family structure to class, from power relations to various identities (racial, sexual and beyond), from seclusion and solitude to the many worlds of contemporary subcultures, from architecture’s role in shaping intimacy to capitalism’s over-determination of Hong Kong’s embattled public space.
