Event Description:

The “Back of House” Series

During the time of isolation and contemplation, many of us are diving into arts, music, literature, film etc; Arts and Culture has always been an important sanctuary in our daily lives and it’s likely we have all taken it slightly for granted.

The Arts & Culture Sub- Committee at Harvard Club HK presents to you a series of events looking into the Arts and Cultural sector, not through the mode of consumption we are accustomed to, but through the lens of “Art is Work”.

HKCHK X PARA SITE (Non Profit Art Organization )

In this event presented by the Arts Committee, Harvard alumni Anqi Li and Harvard Board Director Betty Ng will unveil a few untold aspects of the arts industry. 

We are going to kick off the afternoon with Para Site's Auction Preview followed by an afternoon tea at an independent art space nearby (18/F, 9 Des Voeux Road West), while Anqi and Betty will initiate a discussion on the role of a non profit art organization as a player in the art ecology in the region, the work involved behind the scene running a non profit art organization and touch upon the making of an art space. Anqi, Curator of Education and Public Programs at Para Site, will unveil “behind-the-scenes stories” such as how to put up an exhibition, the various roles that artists, curators, collectors, and patrons play in the art ecology.
