《後#MeToo藝術》一共有12個/組藝術家，16組作品，於賽馬會創意藝術中心L1藝廊和據點空間舉行。當中的小風波也許就是未來的大事件的思源。從2017年#Metoo 運動在國際間的廣泛傳播到一件作品的一件小事，在這裡我們分享的是參與藝術家温倩蘅（小肥, Wun Sin-hang Cynthia, aka Siu Fei）的筆記，在全景中帶著點睛作用，留給我們細味的空間。A docent at the Post #MeToo Art Exhibition found that the dolls’ clothes were unbuttoned, their breasts of the dolls exposed; it felt like they were being sexually assaulted. Soon after the docent immediately buttoned up the dolls, artist Siu Fei installed a board to the doll set that says, “Don’t touch my body !!” Here’s the artist’s own notes on the incident.

Photographer Vicky Do reviews “What Do You Want For Tomorrow” (2016.08.10-2016.09.26, HK Heritage Museum) curated by Wong Wo-bik and Stella Tang. She finds this 12-woman art event more than a photography show or one that tokenizes women.
Critique, review, critique, self-discovery, artistic experimentation, critique, articulation, self-discovery… Wong Fuk-kuen finds himself in this recurrent routine Floating Projects highly values. Extreme modes of artistic exploration of things in our physical world often push us (him) in the direction of science… Danger, Wong finds, is the unique interface he generates in his exploration.
A deliberate dual emphasis on domestic artists and international stars, the care for documentation and criticism as regular agenda items, and growing experiments on alternative independent art-space models from within the art community… Evelyn Char notes her observation in a recent art tour to Gwangju and Seoul.
[FP EXHIBITION REVIEW] Yeung Yang identifies three sets of dilemma – techno-culture, dumb objects, and the challenge of a solo show – and ponders on the place of affect in Wong Chun-hoi’s “Hardworking Burning Electricity.”
