Creation/Curation - Running an Alternative Art Space in Hong Kong About The Speaker Language NOTES TO STUDENTS
While studying in art school in London, Eunice had the chance to visit some of the best museums and exhibitions of the world. But what shook her most were some unexpected places to see art, like an abandoned kindergarten that her artist friends use to set up an exhibition. It inspired her deeply - why weren't there any 'weird' places to do exhibitions in Hong Kong? Why was the art always displayed in white cube galleries and museums? It stirred a fire in Eunice that one day she would try to open her own weird space - to create a new platform for young, underrated artists and creatives to experiment and play. This is the story of the twists and turns in her career path, and how every step (or misstep) taught her something about running an alternative art space in Hong Kong.
An art producer, curator, researcher and arts journalist, Eunice is first and foremost interested in collaborating with creatives and initiating cross-disciplinary dialogues through exhibition-making. Graduating with a BA in Fine Art at London, she returned to Hong Kong where she set up the Artist Book Library and annual book fair in Tai Kwun Contemporary, where she first gained curatorial experience. She has also worked as the Arts Editor of Time Out HK, and a documentary Producer at RTHK. Eunice currently curates and produces exhibitions and programmes at Present Projects.
