Believed in art is for everyone, Altermodernists was founded to connect artists and audience.
As the founder of Altermodernists, I was invited to participate in Sparkle! Neo Travel: Creative and Cultural Docent@ Community curated by Jeff LEUNG in Oct 2017, an installation was created for the exhibition at Oi! Artspace and two studio-hopping tours were designed to bring audience to artists’ studios to get to know both the artists and their arts.
Altermodernists aims to increase the public’s understanding of art, and introduces ways to appreciate art. It is Altermodernists’ mission to encourage the public to know more about art and artists in Hong Kong, to participate in artistic exchange; and to increase the support to local art community.
THE EXHIBIT – The Docent’s Workspace (2017), Installation
Before a docent shows up as a docent,
she is a researcher
she is a creator
she is a curator
she is a planner
she is an administrator
she is a marketer
Every location is hand-picked after interviews with artists and space-owners, the design of Altermodernists’ tours is a repetitive process to discover and connect artistic sites in the city. Aims to promote the experience of art in daily life, local artist-run platform Altermodernists investigates the possibilities to approach and appreciate art in alternative art and cultural space by district.
Through the objects and records that showcase the ‘materials’, formula and preparation process of the Altermodernists tours, in the form of an installation, we get a rare glimpse of the creative space of a docent.
