We are pleased to announce that CFCCA is a partner of the Peer to Peer: UK/HK programme, an inspiring arts exchange between UK and Hong Kong. The programme is designed to encourage meaningful cultural exchange, and to forge enduring partnerships between the UK and Hong Kong’s visual arts sectors.

The programme launches publicly with an online festival of international exchange and collaboration on the 11-14 November, curated by independent curator Ying Kwok.

The Festival will include an online exhibition of digital artworks from UK and Hong Kong based artists, including 5 new commissions by artists nominated by UK and Hong Kong based partners. There will also be a series of digital residencies taking place across partner organisation’s social media channels as well as a set of curated panel discussions.

Peer to Peer: UK/HK is led by University of Salford Art Collection, Open Eye Gallery and Centre for Chinese Contemporary Art (CFCCA) and consists of a network of contemporary visual arts organisations across the UK and Hong Kong. The project has been generously supported by funding from Arts Council England and the GREAT campaign.

As part of the Peer to Peer: UK/HK digital festival, artist Alex Chung Po Lun will be completing a social media residency with CFCCA from 14th November – 12th December. Alex will take over CFCCA’s Instagram each Saturday to share images from his project Hong Kong Spirit (2018-2020), a series of photographs which provide snapshots of everyday life in Hong Kong and explores the city’s changing identity over the last two years.
