About Central West Hong Kong
Central West Hong Kong (CWHK), in collaboration with contemporary art galleries across Central Western district, is a synergic monthly event that showcases a plethora of both local and international artistic talents. With a tailored schedule of gallery programs and special events, such as artist talks, performance, engaging activities, audiences can hop from gallery to another and discover the diverse contemporary art scene. Central West Hong Kong, at the core, is a platform that facilitates collective flourishing between galleries, institutions, art lovers, artists, and curators; this self-initiative event brings momentous change to the Hong Kong art scene in the long term.
In unprecedented times, we are bound to experience our lives in flux with unknowns and uncertainties waiting for us in the future; yet, it is exactly these moments that truly break down our boundaries and strive through hindrances with togetherness. In the art world, the global pandemic, on one hand, brings worries and apprehensions just like in other industries, on the other hand, more than ever, it is also an unstoppable force that drives all sectors as a community to collaborate in synergy. Throwing back to a saying that is recapped for a thousand times by the audience and by the young mind –“why don’t we start over?” Why don’t we once again meet the heart of the artists who are always by our side?
To start over, to be happy together, tiptoe to the night in Central West Hong Kong on 24 September 2020 for an art walk through ups and downs, you may witness the most beautiful comeback of the year 2020. Participating art galleries will offer not only special exhibitions that feature different artistic pursuits, but also live performance one after another, in an attempt to bring in new life and new perspectives to the present moment.
