Transcultural Collaboration 2018 presents:

講咗/冇講 : SPOKEN / UNSPOKEN

 

Date: 24 November 2018, 4.30 pm (and afterparty)

Location: Kai Tak Campus, Academy of Visual Arts, HKBU

Address: 51 Kwun Tong Road, Kowloon, Hong Kong

 

31 young international artists present their experiments whose overarching interest concerns expression beyond, beneath and between words.

The one-day happening conveys artistic strategies that deal with implicit and explicit expression. By creating spaces of ambiguity, gaps, cracks, traces and tensions, the entanglement of Spoken/Unspoken poses an intriguing playground. One that turns out to be a fruitful prism through which a myriad of topics can be looked at, thought about and reflected. The group show will be followed by a dinner buffet and a closing party for the fun-loving folks.

For the fourth year running, the international semester programme “Transcultural Collaboration” gathered graduate students from 7 art universities from East Asia and Europe and a wide range of cultural and professional backgrounds. After 14 weeks of experiments with a collaborative approach—including a two-week exhibition at McaM Museum in Shanghai—the 31 participants of this year’s edition are proud to present the results of their third and final working phase here in Hong Kong.

TRANSCULTURAL COLLABORATION

The works presented are a result of this years’ international graduate semester program “Transcultural Collaboration”, a cooperation of art universities from Europe and East Asia that brings together an extensive range of disciplines and invites them to collectively think about transcultural topics. Its main working method is cross-disciplinary collaboration, including art and design disciplines from music, visual arts and performance to interaction design and everything in between. The multi-sited program mainly takes place in Hong Kong including stays in Zurich, Shanghai and Hangzhou.
