Colonial Recognition Reconciliation

9-A Contemporary Art Space, Hong Kong, 2012


In much of contemporary cultural criticism there is a celebration of diaspora and hybridity as spaces of subversion. Who decides? Providing an outsider translation of history from a modernist Western point of view, four artists transformed the historic site of the Space 9 Memorial Zone into a place of learning about the non-Chinese residents in the city. Hong Kong, a crowded metropolis, represented the point where East meets West. Grants were received from the Chicago Foundation, Space A9 and Daedelus Foundation.
