Time: 7 – 9 pm
The HOPE & GLORY project seeks to move beyond the idea of the art object to explore the idea of art as a place of transformative experience, a ‘third space' of deeper experience in our daily lives. The ‘Art as Place' forum invites a diverse group of Hong Kong arts activists from both the visual and performing arts fields who will share their experiences in creating positive interventions through art in the Hong Kong social landscape. The forum will open with an improvisational, interactive performance within the installation by the Symbiotic Dance Troupe.

HOPE & GLORY研討會

Fri 14 May 2010 . Forum 2 'Re-Generation, De-Generation'
Dates: 14 May, 2010

Venue:
HOPE & GLORY
ArtisTree
1/F Cornwall House

Time: 7 – 9 pm
Hosted by the Centre for the Humanities and Medicine, in conjunction with the
International Academy for Cultural Leadership at the University of Hong Kong.
Today, East Asia is experiencing rapid and unprecedented urbanization. Art is
increasingly being viewed as a ‘creative industry' indispensable to tourism and the
economy. Within this context, many governments and metropolitan authorities are seeking to promote the Arts and to ‘regenerate' urban spaces.
In Re-Generation, De-Generation artists, performers and cultural critics explore the
relationship between art, cities and community. In particular, they consider the deep-rooted assumptions that underlie the concept of ‘regeneration': namely, that urban spaces are prone to decay and therefore require a counter-process of continual revival. But is this true? What are the implications of cultural interventions in the name of renewal? And what would happen if - in the spirit of Italo Calvino's Invisible Cities - Hong Kong was imagined as a multitude of possible cities which art could help to make visible?


HOPE & GLORY研討會

Fri 28 May 2010 . Forum 3 'HOPE & GLORY : The Making'
Dates: 28 May, 2010

Venue:
HOPE & GLORY
ArtisTree
1/F Cornwall House
Island East
Hong Kong
(MTR: Quarry bay, Exit A)

Time: 7 – 9 pm
The installation project HOPE & GLORY was made possible by the participation of many individuals: in Hong Kong, China – and across the globe. In HOPE & GLORY:The Making, artist Simon Birch discusses the collaborative nature of contemporary art-making with friends - fellow artists, designers and others - who helped to realize the project. The forum is at once a celebration of art-making as a communal, interactive and participatory process, and a critical reflection on the challenges of making large-scale art.
