Exhibition Statement
The Dialogue Bands is a collaborative drawing project between students and lecturers of Hong Kong Art School and RMIT School of Art (Melbourne). It synthesized a connection around approaches to thinking through making, exploring ideas, and investigating cultural themes.

20 students from Hong Kong paired with 20 students from Melbourne contributed a part each, to a composite drawing based upon a shared image prompt. The drawing halves were brought together in correspondence to produce single works first shown at the Jockey Club Atrium of Hong Kong Arts Centre, now at Youth Square, and also RMIT University School of Art in Melbourne from March 2024.

Individual students responded in various 2D media to photographic image strips sampled from cultural environments of Melbourne and Hong Kong.

Students from Melbourne worked from the right edge of the common strip to complete their A3 work on paper whilst students from Hong Kong worked from the opposite edge. During the process, they engaged in communication with their collaborating partner to exchange ideas, interpretations, approaches, mediums, and possibilities. Discussions took place via emails, files, or online shared folders. Some works were seamless and harmonized, while others were contrasting and collagic. All were fascinating and contributed to constructing a ‘picture’ of the community of students in the Bachelor of Arts (Fine Art) programme in Hong Kong and Melbourne.
