Not-for-profit arts organisation HART announced the first exhibition resulting from its arts programming. “Household Gods” will open to the public on 30 September 2020, both virtually and physically at HART Hall and runs through to 21 November 2020.
The group exhibition, curated by Ying Kwok, presents the works of four Hong Kong-based artists; Nadim Abbas, Shane Aspegren, Tap Chan, and Wu Jiaru, who are grant-based artists participating in the ongoing sixth session of the HART Social Studio. Showcasing specially commissioned works by HART that encompass painting, sculpture, site-specific installation, and sound work, the exhibition originates from a desire to offer new insights into our complicated and currently uncertain world, addressing questions about the relationships between mankind in its most intimate setting, the household, and natural and supernatural phenomenon. Created and presented during a time of change, “Household Gods” rethinks how art and creativity empower each of us, both in content and form, and will be presented dually through virtual and digital mediums as well in-person interaction with the exhibition.
In the lead-up to and during the exhibition, a series of conversations featuring the curator and artists will be live-streamed from HART Haus, offering behind-the-scenes access and insights. Launching on Friday, 28 August, the series will take place on selected Friday afternoons in the lead up to the exhibition (except for the Opening Programme), please visit the website for full details.
