CurtainMay 15, 2021 - Jul 25, 2021

  • Collaborators: Biljana Ciric and Mathieu Copeland


    Rockbund Art Museum and Para Site are thrilled to continue their fruitful collaboration with the new exhibition, Curtain, opening on 15 May 2021 at Para Site’s home and the institution’s temporary venue in Hong Kong’s Sheung Wan. Curtain is a continuation of the unique dialogue and partnership between the two institutions, which began in 2019 with An Opera for Animals that premiered at Para Site, with a jointly curated edition travelling to Rockbund Art Museum subsequently. Articulated through different visual/performative formats, research projects, and discursive exchanges, this exhibition forms the beginning of CURTAIN, a long-term art project that expands beyond the temporality and physical definition of an exhibition to span multiple geographies and journeys in collaboration with an evolving list of collaborators and practitioners.

    Presented across two venues in Hong Kong, the exhibition includes existing and newly commissioned works as well as site-specific interventions by 24 artists, offering a multi-layered experience that responds to the fluid concept of ‘curtain’. The exhibition makes artistic and conceptual references to passages, frontiers, separations, connections, occupations, circulations, and localities by drawing upon the mundane materiality of the curtain as a domestic object and its scenographic functions in various cultural contexts, and exploring its qualities of porosity and opacity and its contemporary adaptations in electronic devices. Conceived as a framework to disrupt our usual habits of consuming visual culture, the exhibition also activates the viewer’s senses through acts of crawling into, lifting, peeking through, being guided by smell and sound, or that of reading, writing, and feeling a space.
