About

Registration is now open for the Peer to Peer: UK/HK Online Festival, an online platform for cultural exchange between the UK and Hong Kong’s Visual Arts sectors as they interrogate topical  themes of our time including art & activism, art in the digital realm and the climate emergency.

The festival has announced its programme of public events and panel talks, alongside an online exhibition of digital artwork including existing artworks and 5 brand new commissions from artists based in the UK and Hong Kong.

The Peer to Peer: UK/HK Online Festival will take place entirely online between 11-14 November 2020 on peertopeerexchange.org. The festival is free and open to all.

The panel events will include: 

·         The importance of artistic exchange as a radical and necessary response to a changing international world, chaired by Wing-Sie Chan from a-n, the Artists Information Company.

·         Climate change as the defining emergency of our times, and how visual arts can contribute to a greener recovery, chaired by Sarah Fisher from Open Eye Gallery.

·         Exploring the realm of ‘online’ and the concept of online exhibitions v. exhibitions online, chaired by Hong Kong academic and curator Vennes Cheng.

Accompanying the public events will be an entirely online exhibition of digital artworks from artists based in the UK and Hong Kong.

It will include five brand new commissions, nominated and selected by UK and Hong King partner organisations taking part in Peer to Peer: UK/HK. They include UK based artists Antonio Roberts, Danielle Brathwaite-Shirley and Hetain Patel, and Hong Kong based artists Lee Kai Chung and Sharon Lee Cheuk Wun. 

The commissions will be accompanied by over 15 existing digital artworks from nominated artists, to be announced, and a series of social media residencies for UK and Hong Kong artists on the accounts of host organisations from the corresponding country.
