Title:
“The Lobby” Exhibition @PMQ

As an inaugural collaboration between the Hong Kong Arts Centre (HKAC) and the HKU Department of Architecture, The Lobby is an outpost workspace, occupied by the HKAC Public Arts Team. Set up to reveal the complex process-driven art and cultural production, open office hours are created to cultivate transparent inquiries into the inner workings of an arts organization.

Tucked in the corner of PMQ, HKAC’s cultural workers will set up a meeting place for collective building  and proposals consultations, offering all forms of unsolicited advice. Recentering work-in-progress as an exhibition, The Lobby flips the conversation to intervene in the public sphere. By curating consultations, conversations and critiques, it is an exhibition that questions the current process of art production at HKAC.

Once evening hits, the Office will transform into the Lobby, hosting tea time and shared meal sessions to unveil the underlying whispers circulating in the art and cultural ecology. Together with HKU alumni, students and collaborators, we will relearn and unlearn the ever-changing vocabulary that drives the art and cultural ecology in Hong Kong.


Curatorial Team:
Taylor Cheng, Amber Lau, Ian Leung,  Offy Leung, Nickole Li, Clarissa Lim, Jade Lui, Denise Yeung

In collaboration with:
Hong Kong Arts Centre

香港藝術中心公共藝術團隊與香港大學建築學系首次合作,為大家呈獻駐場工作室 — The Lobby。The Lobby 駐場工作室展示策劃藝術文化項目背後的千絲萬縷,同時亦邀請大家近距離了解藝術文化機構的內部運作。

The Lobby 將安頓在元創方的一角,形成聚會空間,建立社群和提供各種形式的諮詢和建議。The Lobby為「展覽」重新定調,聚焦於展示項目籌辦過程。透過各種諮詢、對話及評論,「展覽」旨在與大眾反思藝術中心當下的藝術生產過程。

而當入夜後,我們的工作室將化身成為「客廳」,舉辦茶聚及飯局,侃侃而談香港文藝圈的大小事物。我們將與香港大學校友、學生及其他合作團體聚首一堂,再學習和反學習,持續認識這個不斷演變的藝文生態圈。


策展團隊:
鄭銘柔、劉倬妤、梁偉然、梁嘉詠、李佳琳、林凱琍、雷晴、楊梓晴

協辦:
