"Q&A" invites 18 emerging local artists to participate in a dual-location exhibition: "Joint" cafe located in Wan Chai and "The Catalyst" located in Sheung Wan, to answer hollow questions with diverging yet meaningful answers.
How do we answer meaningless questions like "How are you"? Rarely with the honest truth, "Q&A" presents a multitude of possible answers to the shallow greetings with a theme influenced by daunting morning queries, followed by profound evening contemplations.
Join us in an in-depth visual exploration of dialogues present throughout Hong Kong. Empathise with its local young talents and find distinct understandings of our shared experiences through painting, photography, moving images and installation.

“Dialogue” is the theme of this exhibition. Through sounds, languages, words, body and facial expressions, people communicate with each other, creating a dialogue. Using moving images, pictures and senses as the medium, the 18 artists use space to connect emotions. They transformed what they saw and thought in a certain place into works: A dialogue with the viewer.
Rubbing is a paraphrase of language, a reconstruction of memory. In the exhibited artworks, artists observe the changes in society and record their own behaviour and connection with the community. Leaving an indelible trace through the dialogue with their past or present.
Inspired by these works, we will lead participants in an observing and rubbing activity in the neighbourhood of the exhibition. Through this prompt and direct process, students will engage in a dialogue with the community. Discovering and recording the easily overlooked traces of Hong Kong. This could be the pattern of a banyan tree in a leisure park or the pattern of a drain cover on a road. Reflect on their own connection to the community. Participants will then be able to share their work with others and taste the beauty of their surroundings in a different way, with unspoken words.
