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.
