60-Minute Cinema: China programme

About

60-minute Cinema is a six week changing video programme at Chinese Arts Centre. During this time, our main gallery space will be transformed into a comfortable seating environment specially designed for video viewing. Three curators Dong Bingfeng, Teresa Kwong and Amy Cheng have been invited to curate a 60-minute programme of moving images. Each of the curated programmes will be presented for two weeks. The curators are invited to draw on their specific areas of interest and expertise to encompass artists' film, video and animation, from of their home cities. Their selection reflects their personal interests as well as the differing socio-political and cultural contexts of their locations — mainland China, Taiwan and Hong Kong. Amy Cheng is an independent curator and art critic based in Taipei, Taiwan. She has written for journals such as ARTCO, Yishu and Contemporary Art & Investment. She was the co-curator of the Taipei Biennial in 2004, she curated the Taipei Pavilion at the 2011 Venice Biennale, and co-founded Taipei's The Cube Project Space in 2010. Dong Bingfeng was the Deputy Director of Iberia Center for Contemporary Art and the Chief Editor of Art & Investment, The Independent Critic and ART IN CHINA. He has curated exhibitions on artists' film at the Beijing Film Academy, the Guangdong Museum of Art, and OCAT. Teresa Kwong is a promoter, curator, and producer for film and media arts. She is the Senior Programme Manager at the Hong Kong Arts Centre and the Director of ifva. She has been a jury member of various international film festivals including the Pusan International Film Festival, Rotterdam International Film Festival, International Women's Film Festival in Seoul and Vesoul Asian Film Festival.
