1a空間
香港九龍土瓜灣馬頭角道63號牛棚藝術村14號

1a空間榮譽呈獻當代藝術展《移動的微妙》,將展出新加坡藝術家莊志偉的一系列作品,作品透過酷兒的角度探討「微妙/敏銳」在他的藝術實踐中扮演的角色。是次展覽為1a空間主辦的《新銳當代藝術人才培育計劃》第一部分:公開招募藝術家/策展人(泛亞/“一帶一路”地區)的獲選計劃。

《移動的微妙》是一個有關確立「存在」的展覽。它透過安靜且微妙的方法進行確立的過程;亦透過加密的與表達性的方法尋求再肯定。本展覽是藝術家對過去作品的一個內省的闡釋,橫跨不同的創作形式、物料和議題性的探討,都是藝術家寧靜而潛流般的身份的體現。本展覽亦包括為1a空間場域而設的新作品。

▶關於《新銳當代藝術人才培育計劃 》
1a 空間致力提供發揮平台和資源,予新晉的策展人和藝術家實踐概念性和實驗性的藝術計劃。新銳當代藝術人才培育計劃將提供策展指導、培訓和建議,鼓勵本地及國際人才實現他們的藝術計劃。為加強區域和國際性的交流和對話,計劃將分為兩部分,以吸引來自世界各地的人才。採用創新策展方向和實驗形式的計劃將獲優先考慮。
為同時鼓勵策展研究與展覽策劃的發展,計劃為具潛力的策展人/團隊或藝術家/團體提供發揮平台和資源,以實踐創新和實驗性的計劃,填補大型公共機構與商業機構間的空隙。策展駐留計劃的目的是透過國際協作以推動香港的藝術發展,及加強香港的國際策展研究。2019年秋季的首輪公開招募計劃邀請一名來自泛亞地區或“一帶一路”地區的藝術人才/單位。
