Arrow Factory reclaims an existing storefront and transforms it into a space for site-specific installations and projects that are designed to be viewed from the street 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.</span></p> <p style="text-align: justify;" class="style1 style11"><span style="font-family: times new roman,times; font-size: medium;"><strong>Arrow Factory</strong>’s modestly sized space (15 sqm) occupies a former vegetable stand, signaling an economy of means that informs our practice and promotes artistic collaboration, exploration and experimentation across different cultural contexts and viewing publics. We are committed to presenting works by local and international artists that are provisional in nature, highly contingent upon the immediate environment and that form meaningful responses to the diverse economic, political and social conditions of our given locality and everyday lived experiences.</span></p> <p style="text-align: justify;" class="style1 style11"><span style="font-family: times new roman,times; font-size: medium;"><strong>Arrow Factory</strong>, founded in 2008, was initiated as a response to the current conditions facing contemporary art production in Beijing. At present, contemporary art has been largely defined by its commercial nature and increasing confinement to purpose-built art districts in the remote outskirts of the city. This raises many questions regarding art’s physical remove from the urban fabric of the city, not to mention the severing of an artwork’s ties to the very social and political conditions it is alleged to represent. For Arrow Factory meaning making is an activity that occurs through interacting with the pre-existing givens of a site, and adopting a strategy whereby the social frame does not so much ‘surround’ as much as it becomes part of the work.</span></p> <p style="text-align: justify;" class="style1 style11"><span style="font-family: times new roman,times; font-size: medium;"><strong>Arrow Factory</strong> shares the same name as the hutong alley in which we reside. We hold a temporary commercial business license, but we do not sell anything. We subsist on small contributions from friends, colleagues and ourselves. We do not hold openings and we operate modestly, spontaneously and flexibly. Our mission is simply to provide an alternative; a different context in which artists can experiment with pushing the relationships that radiate outwards from the levels of the individual, the neighborhood, the urban, the region, to finally, the global.</span></p> </div> Tue, 11 Dec 2012 21:23:56 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/cn/Venues/list http://www.artslant.com/cn/Venues/list Art Basel Hong Kong, Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre, 1 Harbour Road, Wanchai,, Hong Kong, China <p>From emerging talents to the Modern masters of both Asia and the West, the premiere edition of Art Basel in Hong Kong will trace twelve decades of art history across its four sectors: Galleries, Insights, Discoveries, and Encounters.

China‘s sustained, rapid economic development has impressed people across the globe during this time of economic slowdown elsewhere. Moreover, China’s extraordinary performance has brought opportunities for development throughout Asia. China is harnassing Asia’s resources for profound growth in both art and commerce. Beijing is China‘s political and economic center, as well as the nexus of Chinese art and culture. It is clear why top art galleries from around the globe have selected Beijing as the cornerstone of their new developments.</p> Sat, 13 Apr 2013 07:25:17 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/cn/Venues/list http://www.artslant.com/cn/Venues/list ART HK 10, Hong Kong Convention & Exhibition Centre, 1 Expo Drive, Wanchai , Hong Kong, China <p style="margin-top: 0px; margin-right: 0px; margin-bottom: 1em; margin-left: 0px; font-size: 12px; line-height: 1.4em; text-align: justify; padding: 0px;">ART HK 10 brings together a unique combination of expertise and experience in the worlds of international events and Modern and Contemporary Art.
