Time/Space: Brief as Photos ── Dialogue between Joseph Fung and his Contemporaries
With his forward-looking vision of photographic art, Joseph Fung Hon Kee has been a key figure in the contemporary art world of Hong Kong and Mainland China.
For nearly five decades, Fung has served in multiple roles: photographer, educator, writer, and curator, continually demonstrating impeccable skills and versatility.
This exhibition “Time/Space: Brief as Photos — Dialogue between Joseph Fung and his Contemporaries” is a selection of his iconic works from the 1980s to the present. It is divided into four sections that trace the chronology of his creative path:
Ⅰ China, My China
Ⅱ Chicago Years
Ⅲ Avant-Garde Vision
The exhibition explores and spotlights Fung’s prolific artistic practice which spans social documentary photography, new documentary photography, conceptual photography, manipulated or para-photography, performative portraitures, digital imaging and photo-installation.
Ten prominent visual artists have been invited to provide responding works and video interviews in parallel with the stages of Fung’s artistic practice; the dialogue sheds light on the development of Hong Kong contemporary photography over the past 40 years.
