Feb 20 – Mar 10, 2002

Para Site Art Space is proud to present Social Club, an exhibition of our friends’ works from February 20th to March 10th 2002, at its Sheung Wan premise.

Artists often work in solitude. But some are drawn together by similar artistic directions, exhibition opportunities or simply friendship. Art society social clubs are common throughout history. “Make friends through art” has been a strong component of these societies and their development.

Since the role of the exhibition curator became conspicuous, the exhibitions organised by these art societies have been regarded as amateur. In art salons such as Bloomsbury or Der Blaue Reiter (“The Blue Rider”), however, strong friendships fostered a lively creative environment and artistic exchange without diminishing creative earnestness or the quality of work.

Social Club will not rely on any grand theme or heavy curatorial statement. Rather, it will be an open exhibition of works from Para Site friends and members, with attention focused on the individual artist. Over 30 artists will show works of their own interest and manners.
