續章:香港當代藝術展 Next Act: Contemporary Art from Hong Kong



在不同的文化裡,三十歲象徵著個人成長的里程碑。傳統儒家的哲學思想中提到的「三十而立」,指出三十歲為邁進成長的關鍵年,建立的觀點及態度將會成就往後的三十年。時至今日,大眾亦把三十歲視為成熟的指標,一個讓我們回望過去,並展望豐盛未來的轉折點。

踏入第三十個年頭,亞洲協會香港中心亦分享這個情感的共鳴,希望在這個時間反思香港的社會歷史發展,並以組織自身反思其建立溝通和理解的橋樑的角色。作為連繫亞洲與世界其他地區的教育樞紐,我們期望籍這次展覽呈現當代藝術與理論知識的結合,並呈現創作的多樣面向。


《續章:香港當代藝術展》匯聚了十位活躍於本地的藝術家,藉著研究式的創作,以回應他們對香港歷史及生活的集體回憶。在沒有既定的創作藍圖下,藝術家以不同的研究手法作原點,繼而進入啟發及思考過程,再轉化為具強烈的視覺、互動及表演元素的作品。我們鼓勵觀眾開放自己的感官和想像力來欣賞作品,以嶄新的角度探索過去,細味當下同時也可思考未來。

《續章》擺脫了以藝術家個人觀點為主導的既定認知﹐強調以藝術創作的批判思維;將藝術創作的過程作為多角度思考的探索。同時,展覽亦以感官的學習體驗來探索製作藝術和文化活動的可能。不論未來的發展如何,我們將繼續致力為社會帶來一個可促進各界合作的多元平台。

In many cultures, the age of 30 often signifies a milestone for personal growth. According to the Confucian philosophy, while education and self-development is a lifelong journey to attain personal virtue, 30 represents a gateway of maturation where a person crystallizes his or her intellectual stance for the next 30 years of their life. Nowadays, turning 30 also signifies a person’s maturity in adulthood – a personal turning point as we learn from our past, prepare ourselves in the present to move forward into a more promising future.


Coinciding with Asia Society Hong Kong Center’s 30th anniversary in 2020, we also resonate with this sentiment through reflecting our work in art and culture alongside Hong Kong’s social and historical development. As an educational organization that builds bridges between Asia and the rest of the world, we expand our focus to explore and present a sophisticated development in contemporary art that interweaves with theoretical knowledge.


Next Act: Contemporary Art from Hong Kong features research-based works by 10 local artists that respond to the shared history and collective memories of Hong Kong. Throughout the creative process, each artist focused on different research methodologies as a starting point for their inspiration and thinking process. This process culminates in a collection of exciting works that are visually impactful, interactive, and performative. We encourage visitors to open their senses and imagination when viewing the works by delving into the past to form new perspectives, savor the present, and contemplate what the future holds.


Next Act highlights the critical dimension of these creative practices by pivoting away from the conventional perception that art is a sensual form of truth. Instead, the final works make the creation of art a journey of critical thinking. The exhibition also opens up new areas of possible arts and culture programs that are immersive and educational. Whatever the future holds, we remain passionate about moving forward to provide an inclusive platform that encourages collaboration across different disciplines.
