Para Site is one of the most active independent art institutions in Asia. It produces exhibitions, publications, discursive, and educational projects aimed at forging a critical understanding of local and international phenomena in art and society. Founded in early 1996 as an artist-run space, Para Site was Hong Kong’s first exhibition-making institution of contemporary art and a crucial self-organised structure within the city’s civil society, during the uncertain period preceding the Handover. Throughout the years, Para Site has grown into a rooted contemporary art centre with a permanent space, while engaging in a wide array of activities and collaborations with other art institutions, museums, and academic structures in Hong Kong and the international landscape. In early 2015, Para Site moved to greatly increased premises, in North Point/Quarry Bay.
All attendees are expected to wear a facemask throughout the entire duration of our visit. Para Site will also request guests to fill out a simple Google Form upon arrival. Thank you for your cooperation.
