Workshops for Emerging Professionals 2018

For the fourth year in a row, Para Site is working with a group of emerging art professionals from across the region and the world, running a series of free-of-charge workshops for 9 days, alongside the international conference. This unique program for the region includes a group of participants selected from an outstanding international pool of over 50 applicants this year. The program is designed to provide learning opportunities that are mediated by speakers from Para Site’s conference as well as by art practitioners from across Hong Kong’s diverse institutional landscape. Working with topics covered in the conference, the program provides a laboratory for experimentation, posing fundamental questions and ideas that challenge various models of curatorial practice.

Para Site is also offering a number of scholarships to cover the flights and accommodation for selected participants, generously made possible by workshop supporters: Nicola Chu, James Lie, Elaine W. Ng & Fabio Rossi, Heidi & James Paradise, Stefan Rihs, SAM Fund for Arts and Ecology, Katherine Schaefer, Andres Vejarano & Kee Foong, Leslie Van Eyck & Tom Meganck.

The participants are Bob Edrian Triadi (Indonesia), Vennes Cheng (Hong Kong), Sophie Davis (New Zealand), Yuan Fuca (China), Sean Gaffney (USA/Taiwan), Eric Goh (Malaysia), Saba Khan (Pakistan), Leung Hoyin (Hong Kong), Taddeo Reinhardt (France), Valerie-Ann Tan (Singapore), Rui Tang (China/USA), Takuya Tsutsumi (Japan/Poland), Mihaela Varzari (Romania/UK), and Zeng Hong (China/Hong Kong).
