Satellite Exhibitions 2023
An international exchange programme
The drastic changes and turbulence we have experienced in Hong Kong has had a profound impact on the city’s next generation. The challenge remains: how can we discern different paths amidst uncertainty? In a bid to carve out new trajectories for collaboration, we have selected seven emerging artists from Hong Kong who were recommended by our fellow industry practitioners earlier this year. Each of them are invited to pair up with an image maker from abroad, and over the course of one year, they will draw on their experiences and viewpoints to inspire each other to observe, examine, and reflect on different meanings and values in their search for new directions.
The six overseas image makers have been nominated by six photography organisations from the Asia Pacific, including Angkor Photo Festival & Workshops (Cambodia), Lightbox Photo Library (Taiwan), Matca (Vietnam), Objectifs (Singapore), Photo Australia (Australia) and PhotoBangkok (Thailand). In a time of isolation and distancing, we hope to deepen connections and foster future possibilities through the sharing of ideas and resources.
The programme began in June 2022. We are excited to showcase their work as part of HKIPF 2023, and are pleased to have them altogether in Hong Kong in October. The artists’ carefully crafted work will be presented in exhibition spaces across Hong Kong Island and Kowloon, including PMQ, Artzbrew Gallery, Goethe-Institut, EJAR, Art Space 1999, Eaton HK, Current Plans, JCCAC, and Floating Projects.
