ArtMart started 9 years ago to raise funds for our organisation and to promote Hong Kong art and its artists. Every year, we hope to improve upon ourselves to make ArtMart a more exciting event, better serving the needs of the artists, our supporters and the community. Through ArtMart, it is our goal to raise more funds for artists to focus on the production process of art and put on high quality exhibitions.
ABOUT PARA/SITE ART SPACE
Para/Site Art Space is a non-profit art organization founded by a group of artists in the beginning of 1996 as one of the first independent art spaces in Hong Kong. We produce, exhibit and com municate local and international contemporary arts to the local art community and are involved in various international exhibitions such as the 4 th Gwangju Biennale 2002, the 50 th Venice Biennale 2003 and the 2 nd Guangzhou Triennial 2005.
Our main activities include presenting an ambitious year programme comprising 10 exhibitions, publications of catalogues and PS magazine, Hong Kong's only bilingual visual arts publication. To compliment our year programme, seminars, talks and workshops conducted by both local and international art professionals are regularly organised. We also manage another exhibition space - Para/Site Central, the smallest exhibition venue in Hong Kong, hosted by Hanart TZ Gallery, featuring young local emerging talents.
Para/Site Art Space is supported by the Hong Kong Arts Development Council as well as vital contributions from patrons and friends of Para/Site Art Space.
The Starstreet Precinct – centred around Three Pacific Place and comprising mainly of Star Street, Moon Street, Sun Street, Wing Fung Street – is fast generating buzz as a destination for those who are in the mood for unique lifestyle choices. Back in the 1900s, it was the location of Hong Kong Electric’s power plant. Today, the precinct has evolved into an emerging dining area with strong artistic overtones, all thanks to a group of creative talents, designers and free-thinking restaurateurs who have filled the area with cafes, restaurants, bars, galleries, florists and home design outlets.
Together with a thoughtfully landscaped environment and a recently opened 3PP Link connecting the precinct to the rest of the PP complex, these ‘stars’ have turned the area into a Hong Kong lifestyle community with a quirky ambience, and have attracted other style-conscious entrepreneurs to add eclectic variety to the community. Apart from visitors who are in search of a hip and relaxed escape, the Starstreet Precinct also serves as a hub for high-profile finance and professional services corporations in Three Pacific Place, as well as a fashionable address for residents of the neighbouring premium residences.
