1a空間現正就第一屆《藝術而立》公開招募藝術團隊,每隊須由一名藝術家、一名策展人,及一名研究員,共三人組成。我們旨在為處於職業生涯中期的藝術家持續舉辦一系列的個人展覽和編撰學術刊物,以回應香港缺乏生涯中期回顧展,以及本地藝術研究和記錄的現況。是次計劃將會向公眾展示藝術家的創作歷程,以促進和鼓勵長期的藝術實踐。與此同時,我們希望藝術家、策展人和研究員在創作交流的過程中,能重新思考不同參與者在策展上所扮演的角色,並探索不同展覽形式的可能性。

是次計劃將為由藝術家、策展人,及研究員組成的三人藝術團隊提供場地及出版支援。成功申請者將於2022年初在1a空間的畫廊舉辦個人展覽,並出版藝術家專著。藝術家將與策展人緊密合作,屆時展覽期望能完整地呈現出藝術家多年的創作歷程,並展示藝術家如何反思、否定,繼而重新建構不同的創作理念。我們旨在策劃一個具連貫性,題材豐富多元的回顧展,更視策展研究爲核心元素之一,以填補大型公共機構和商業畫廊之間的空隙。在展覽進行期間,我們還會舉辦一系列的公共藝術項目,如 : 藝術家講座及導賞團等,並邀請公衆與藝術家、策展人,和研究員進行互動交流,以展開更多延伸討論。

為了讓展覽能更進一步紮根於本地藝術研究,獲選的研究員將負責撰寫一系列以參展藝術家為中心的學術文章。專題文章應包括,但不限於介紹性文章、藝術家簡歷、藝術評論文章、藝術品圖像和展覽現場影像。計劃所出版的學術著作希望能跨越展覽及相關活動的時限性,成為長遠的學術資源,有助於本地藝術研究。

成功申請者將獲得:
- 行政及場地支援
- 出版支持 (包括書本設計、藝術作品和展覽相關的攝影支援、ISBN註冊、編目等)
- 每位參展的藝術家、策展人,和研究人員將獲得創作費

1a space is pleased to announce an open call for trio group(s) composed of an artist, a curator and a researcher to participate in the Mid-Career Artist Exhibition & Publication Series. In response to the shortage of mid-career retrospectives in Hong Kong and the need of documenting and researching the local art ecology, we aim to initiate a long-term commitment to a series of comprehensive solo exhibitions and high-quality publications dedicated to mid-career artists. Through demonstrating an artist’s creative process in a thorough and inclusive manner to the general public, the project serves to acknowledge and encourage prolonged artistic practices. In addition, by facilitating dynamic collaborations between leading Hong Kong artists, curators, and researchers, we hope to invite reflections upon different roles and possibilities in exhibition-making.

We seek to support a trio consisted of an artist, a curator, and a researcher, to realise a solo exhibition at the 1a space gallery in early 2022, coupled with an artist monograph publication. Pairing a deserving curatorial talent with a mid-career artist, the survey exhibition is expected to make visible the progression of an artist’s journey, demonstrating how an artist reflects, reconfigures and rejects idea. The project also sees curatorial research as a core component in tandem with exhibition planning. We intend to develop cohesive and well-contextualized retrospectives that fill in the gap between larger public institutions and commercial galleries. In accompany with the exhibition, public programmes such as artist talks and guided tours will be organized, inviting the local community to interact with the artist, curator and researcher, and to expand related discussions.

To further anchor the exhibition in the wider local art discourse, the selected researcher will be responsible to conduct research and produce essay(s) focused on the artist. The publication shall include, but is not limited to, introductory essay(s), biographical information on the artist, analyses of works of art, artwork illustrations and installation images of the exhibition. While the exhibition and related programmes are temporal events, the academic monograph produced will continue to contribute to the research of local art as a helpful and permanent resource.

Successful applicants will receive:
- Administration and venue support
- Publication support (including book designing, artwork and exhibition photography support, ISBN registration, collecting and sorting out cataloguing details, etc.)
- Production fee for each participating artist, curator and researcher
- Press materials and PR support
