Curating issues and the figure of the curator seem to be very important within the ongoing developments in the globalized art scene in general, and in Hong Kong in particular. These issues arise from the very dynamic development of the cultural field and from the growing interest in forging stronger identities in what are often hybrid cultural scenes. Connecting Spaces aims to develop strategies for providing orientation and for opening up innovative perspectives on the art system on a globalized, trans-local level. It also seeks to extend curatorial concepts to fields beyond the visual arts, including artistic or design strategies in urban contexts, music, and theatre. Projects are initiated in cooperation with selected cultural partners (Para Site Art Space, Asia Art Archive, M+ Museum). Website under construction; detailed informations will follow soon.
