A Collective Present: Cultural Institution Spring Workshop’s Final Exhibit

Why We Recommend it

The exhibition assembles the ongoing research of Tiffany Chung and Koki Tanaka, which explores the theme of freedom in recent Hong Kong history.



This show brings together the works of two resident artists ,Tiffany Chung and Koki Tanaka, who have been with the cultural institute since 2016.

Chung’s work revisits the experiences of the Vietnamese refugees who spent their youth in Hong Kong’s detention centers during the post-1975 Vietnamese refugee crisis.

Tanaka will present threads from a new work Precarious Tasks #9: 24hrs Gathering (Timeline), in which he conducted interviews through which he composed a possible timeline of Hong Kong’s social movements since the ‘60s. 

Curated by Christina Li, the pair of works unpack Hong Kong’s recent history from the ‘60s to the present. The show marks the final exhibit of the five-year-old cultural initiative.
