HKMOA:New Horizon:
Ways of Seeing Hong Kong Arts in the 80s and 90s



A three years Research-Based Art project at Hong Kong Museum of Art, 2019-2022

The 80s and 90s marked a turning point in the development of Hong Kong art. This exhibition does not present it in the form of a historical narrative; rather, it seeks to examine new horizons in Hong Kong art from the perspective of macro and microhistory1, with a curatorial approach. The members of our curatorial and research teams (including researcher Lo Yin-shan, the curatorial team at the Hong Kong Museum of Art, and myself) are art and cultural workers, who were nurtured by new developments in Hong Kong art in the 80s and 90s. In the planning stage, we took our own personal and work experience over the past 20 to 30 years as our point of departure. Over the course of a year and a half, we interviewed and had conversations with many artists. These dialogues, which embodied profound subjective sensibilities, formed the foundations of our research. They led us into a deeper inquiry into the people, organisations, exhibitions, events and objects featured in the art sphere during those two decades.
