Universal Art World Adaptor

Aug 26, 2015

Para Site is pleased to present the public programmes for Imagine there’s no country, Above us only our cities, the exhibition on view through September 6, 2015.

Delving deeper into the various ideas explored in the exhibition, Universal Art World Adapter consists of two panel discussions that look at ways in which artists and curators express their ideas through different practices. The discussions question how the diversity of role playing among art professionals affects the definitions of those professions and disciplines, and how one can activate from within the cultural industry framework and invent strategies of critique using a variety of media, including the exhibition format. For the first session, curator Jims Lam together with artists Luke Ching and Lam Tung Pang, look into the relationships between artists and communities, and how through collaboration, participation, and immersion, artists are able to respond to the specific needs of communities and broaden audience participation.

The second session, together with Clara Cheung (co-director of C&G Artpartment), South Ho (100 ft Park), and Tang Kwok Hin, explores the various functions amongst art professionals on how to define the new role of artist/curator/producer in con-temporary art production.
