‘afterbefore: images and sounds from Hong Kong’ is an independent, multimedia exhibition bringing together a collaborative group of Hong Kong photographers, videographers, sound artists together with writers, poets, and curators. Visual and sonic works are included alongside textual pieces. This exhibition will be on view in New York City from January 29-February 9, 2020 in the Gallery of the non-profit, independent arts organization Chinatown Soup.

The mission of the ‘afterbefore’ project is to create a platform for Hong Kong artists to be seen and heard at this critical time; to open a more authentic, personal, and intimate window into the Hong Kong experience; and to generate communication, exchange, and dialogue with a global network.

In addition to the core exhibition of artworks are texts by poets, writers and cultural figures (both HKers and non-ethnic Chinese HKers), as well as a special selection of zines created during the last few months by artist collectives, students and other activist citizens from all over Hong Kong and beyond. During the exhibition, informal discussion forums, including on-site and Skype sessions with participating artists, and performances by local artists and musicians will take place with dates to be announced soon.

獨立策展項目afterbefore: images and sounds from Hong Kong 是一眾香港攝影師、錄像創作者、聲音藝術家、作家、詩人和策展人的協作。afterbefore旨在建立一個能動平台:讓創作人為香港發聲之餘,也讓觀眾透過作品一窺我城中各種個人的生命經驗,繼而在國際層面締造對談與交流的機會。藝術作品除外,展覽亦包括了香港詩人、作家、非華裔香港文化人的文字創作,以及一組抗爭小誌。展覽期間更設有兩場座談會,及多位紐約藝術家和音樂人的演出。
