Have you ever heard of Para/site? No, I’m not talking about lices, fleas or other nasty bugs but about one of Hong Kong’s most progressive contemporary art gallery. Para/Site Art Space is a non-profit art organization in the centre of Hong Kong. We produce, exhibit and communicate local and international contemporary art. Their main activities include presenting an ambitious year programme comprising 10 exhibitions, publications of catalogues and PS magazine, Hong Kong’s only bilingual visual arts publication. To compliment their year programme, seminars, talks and workshops are regularly organised. They also manage another exhibition space – Para/Site Central, the smallest exhibition venue in Hong Kong, which is hosted by Hanart TZ Gallery in Central.
The video above is the interview clip by SO-U.TV with Tobias Berger, the curator.
