Remaking History ⎹ ACC @ Art Basel Hong Kong 2022


ACC@Art Basel Hong Kong Week#4 Bulletin champions four of our alumni who explores the relationship of art to history, memory, and time. Driven by the profound engagement with the medium of photography, both So Hing Keung and Leung Chi Wo investigate how the past is constructed as history and how art can conceptualize and critique historical representation. Kwan Pun Leung, on the hand, reveal the uncanny ways that images and experiences from the past penetrate our present, often creating a sense of déjà vu. As for Beatrix Pang, her work is a narrative that value all human experience, politics, and social interaction.
