15 Nov 2014 - 01 Feb 2015

“Conforming to Vicinity – A Cross-Strait Four-Region Artistic Exchange Project 2014” showcases the latest artworks by thirteen artists from Hong Kong, Mainland, Macao and Taiwan. Our exhibition is curated by the chief curator, FENG Boyi, and the curators of the four regions, Sarah NG Sau Wah (Hong Kong), GOU Xian Xu (Mainland), Noah NG Fong Chao (Macao) and HSU Woan Jen (Taiwan).

The project features installation/video arts, paintings and photographs by artists from the cross-strait four-regions: Otto LI, Keith LAM and Keung HUNG from Hong Kong; Yong Feng MA, Wen Chao ZHANG and Wei CHEN from Mainland; Carol KWOK, Bonnie LEONG, Kitty LEUNG and Eric FOK from Macao; Ken Tsai LEE, Hui Chan KUO and Liu ZHAO from Taiwan. This traveling exhibition began in Macao in March and moved to Pingtung in Taiwan in May and Shenzhen in Mainland China in July, before concluding in Hong Kong from 15 November 2014 through 1 February 2015.

This year's creative display shows artworks that change and develop from exhibition places to places by conforming to and confronting each local environment. It is a new kind of exhibition to understand and display the exchange relationship among the cross-strait four regions. In other words, in addition to artistic exchange, the artworks will not only showcase the artists’ understanding and recognition of the four regions but display the artists’ adjustments and conflicts of different current social structures, cultural habitats and their comprehension of the local circumstances.

Our education programme features an academic symposium entitled “Conforming and Confronting: Arts Around the Cross-Strait Four-Regions”, on the November 15 (Saturday) which includes specialists, art historians and artists who share their expertise and inside knowledge of contemporary art with all participants. Furthermore, we offer to a series of "Creating Art with Artists" workshops that run from 11 November to the end of the exhibition early next year.
