Dialogue!

Dialogue! returns to Oi! on 31 October and 1 November 2015 as we invite art professionals, artists and academics from Hong Kong, the Mainland and overseas to discuss current affairs and issues in the field of art. By sharing their experiences and analysing case studies, the forum aims to encourage exchange and communication among art practitioners.

Museums, academies, galleries, art spaces and institutions continue to play a dominant role as facilitators and enablers in today’s art ecology. As many contemporary art practices illustrate, self-initiated movements led by individuals, collectives and independent art organisations are challenging conventional approaches and existing structures in art creation and even triggering intrinsic change in the nature of art itself. With shared values at their heart, these bottom-up practices not only use social networks and resources, but also adopt short-term tactics and long-term strategies in response to external changes in the environment and internal adjustments of their own values, thus producing a more open ideology for contemporary art and society at large as they open the door for art to penetrate into everyday life.

By sharing and analysing case studies, we look forward to exploring with art practitioners and other stakeholders how art individuals can link up and form a cohesive community, develop and promote innovative ideas and discover and integrate potential resources to extend the influence of contemporary art practices.
