Stakeholders: Exhibition staff in Venice

The title of this year’s Hong Kong exhibition at the 58th Venice Biennale is “Stakeholders: Hong Kong in Venice,” through which artist Shirley Tse proposes a world-view where everyone is a stakeholder. Here, I would like to introduce some of the stakeholders of the Venice Biennale–the Biennale exhibition staff. These are the indispensable but unacknowledged individuals who spend the most time at the exhibitions, who take care of the artworks and venues, greet and aid dazed and confused visitors, and make sure the show go on (or not) under whatever circumstances.

(May) We All Live in Interesting Times

“May You Live in Interesting Times,” the title of the 58th edition of the Venice Biennale, is said to be an ancient Chinese curse, though none of the Chinese here at the Biennale, at least those I have met, seem to have any inkling where this comes from.

重踏西九

仔細一想,上次來西九文化區,已是四年前的事了。在這四年間,西九的變化比我想像中大,綠化面積增加了,第一個表演埸地「戲曲中心」也即將啟用。重踏西九,有截然不同的感覺,看着西九的工程發展得如火如荼,十分期待完工後,再次蒞臨這多元文化匯聚的海濱長廊。

An Art and Cultural Promoter in the Middle of a 'Cultural Desert'

What is your impression of working in WKCDA? Full of art-lover? Or everyone working here has strong art knowledge? I would say joining WKCDA allows me to be a step near to arts and cultural industry and to be more curious about arts.
