Doubt is a concept close to my heart (for all the right – and wrong reasons). It is a state of being separated from fixed ideas, moving into a region where certainties flicker out like an ageing fluorescent strip. I feel this movement into doubt is a primary activity of art: simulation, illusion, questioning, all the while leaving the audience open to new thoughts and ways of thinking. The artist does things and I ask: “Why are they doing this?” Doubt is a region of productivity, of... [more]

        This project sets out with the best of intentions: on the occasion of the retirement of Lui Chun Kwong, a highly influential professor of painting at the Chinese University of Hong Kong, a number of his students have been invited to work through his contributions to local art. As an exhibition, however, is an utter disaster. The sprawling gallery space is packed to the brim with often barely conceived and poorly wrought installations and paintings from some 50 artists, not counting... [more]

      Pak Sheung Chuen, who represented Hong Kong at the last Venice Biennale in a well-received solo exhibition, has discovered an unlikely but shockingly effective method for dealing with the lack of institutional support for contemporary practice in Hong Kong. Invited to present a "response exhibition" at the Hong Kong Museum of Art in the wake of a similar project organized by his gallery, , at the Guangdong Museum of Art in Guangzhou, Pak was then informed that there would be no support...

  The problem with making an exhibition about what’s not there is that you run the risk of showing nothing at all. Absence is a difficult thing to see, its visibility relying on reference points and shared assumptions. Without the right cues there is a serious risk that viewers won’t notice what they’re meant (not) to see. In “I’m Not Here: An Exhibition Without Francis Alÿs,” a solo-cum-group show at De Appel Jongensschool, curators take this risk, organizing a retrospective of sorts in... [more]
