En Mal D’Archive – Memory Revisited
This curatorial project considered the idea of the archive and archival practices. The project was a collaboration between between CoCulture and Dawlaty Institute’s programme ‘Preserving the Oral History of Syria’.
Portals, Stories, and Other Journeys
The exhibition ‘Portals, Stories, and Other Journeys’ stems from Asia Art Archive’s research since 2014 into the personal archive of the late Hong Kong–based artist Ha Bik Chuen (1925–2009). The curator for the show, Michelle Wong, invited artists to respond to the artist’s archive, stretching the possibilities of archival work. In this interview Wong shares details about the research on Ha Bik Chuen and the conceptualisation of the exhibition.
