Mr. Ng Siu King, Kingsley

Assistant Professor
Media Art, Experience Design, Social Innovation Sustainable Design

Ng is an inter-disciplinary artist and designer with a focus on conceptual, site-specific, and community-engaging projects. His creative practices are driven not by a self-indulgent romance of art, but a belief that art can be socially relevant.

Ng holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in New Media from Ryerson University, Canada; a Master of Science degree in Sustainable Design from The University of Edinburgh, Scotland; and Post-Diplôme avec les félicitations du jury à l’unanimité (Master of Fine Arts degree equivalent) from Le Fresnoy – Studio National des Arts Contemporains, France.

His work has been showcased at the Guangzhou Triennial, the Shanghai Expo, the Echigo-Tsumari Art Triennial and various exhibitions in France, Italy and Canada. He is the recipient of the Hong Kong Arts Development Best Artist Award (Media Arts) in 2013, Asian Cultural Council Fellowship in 2013, Hong Kong Young Design Talent Award in 2008, and a Hong Kong Contemporary Art Biennial Award in 2009. He is currently assistant professor at the Academy of Visual Arts of Hong Kong Baptist University.

As an Asian Cultural Council Fellow, Ng had the chance to conduct research in the United States and throughout South East Asia, to study art projects involving community participation and the intersection between art and daily life.  In recent years, Ng realised a number of projects to further this research interest. Etudes for the Everyday is a series of exhibitions and workshops launched in 2013. Through developing creative exercises to be practised periodically in quotidian situations, over 100 leading art practitioners were mobilised to reach out to the wider public. To the moon is a community art project in which a series of storytelling sessions and participatory experiences were staged in a public park in Jordan Valley, under the full moon during the Mid-Autumn Festival in 2014.
