Castlefield Gallery and Hong Kong Arts Centre (HKAC) are working together to co-present the work of six artists: online on the Peer to Peer: UK/HK 2022 festival website and through two live events in Manchester (8th Sept) and Hong Kong (16th Sept).
The artists have been put into pairs and invited to get to know each other’s work. During the two live events the artists who will be physically present in their home cities, will stand in for those that are absent, in an attempt to embody their work for the audiences. The aim of this project is also to help the artists explore ways of contextualising and communicating their work to a distant audience and to explore ways of connecting, exchanging and being together – on and off screen.
