Curatorial Panel and Guided Tours

 

Curatorial Panel

 

Date: 2 June 2021 (Wednesday), 6pm HKT

Online - Zoom ID: 833 2636 6449 / Passcode: 219672

 

Para Site will host an online curatorial panel with the six curators of "Curtain": Cosmin Costinas, Larys Frogier, Celia Ho, Anqi Li, Billy Tang, and Xu Tiantian. A continuation of the fruitful collaboration between Para Site and Rockbund Art Museum that started with "An Opera for Animals" in 2019, "Curtain" is conceived as a framework to disrupt the current habits of consuming visual culture. In this panel, the six curators will discuss the various themes explored in the exhibition, from the curtain as a domestic object, its scenographic functions, to its adaptations as electronic screens.
