Welcome to YCC's first collective funding campaign.
From the start we have wanted to revisit the notion of arts patronage in Asia. In response, we are thrilled to launch YCC’s ‘Collective Funding’ programme that aims to use the 'collective power' of our 200+ active members to fund a particular project at four select non-profits across Hong Kong across the period of 12 months.
As artists engaged with anthropological research and new media, Zheng Mahler will create a new video and sound walk that maps out key historical moments in Sham Shui Po. From the concreted-over stream that existed until the 1960’s on Nam Cheong Street to the Japanese POW camp during WW2, the work will transplant the 19th century figure of the flanneur who strolled the boulevards of Paris and urge viewers to observe, both actually and virtually, the poetics of urban life.
To visit the space, join us for a tour August 20 at 12noon, RSVP at [email protected]
Any questions do not hesitate to email Jennifer Caroline Ellis at [email protected]
A private event with all donors, founder Luke Casey and the artists will be organised in conjunction with the opening of the commission.
