RE: Tai Kok Tsui – Public Space Art Intervention Open Call 01

Date: 2024.05.10 - 2025.09.16

RE: Tai Kok Tsui

Turn Around with Imaginations

 

Funded by: URF logo

Organised by: HKAC_PublicArt_Lock-up

 

With the 6th round of the Urban Renewal Heritage Preservation and District Revitalisation Funding Scheme granted from the Urban Renewal Fund (URF), the Public Art Team at the Hong Kong Arts Centre (HKAC) presents the 'RE: Tai Kok Tsui' public art and community art project, the project is supported by Yau Tsim Mong District Office as the Strategic Partner.

Tai Kok Tsui is the quintessential Hong Kong community that blends old traditions with new happenings. Over the decades, neighbours have come together to create a vibrant and decent living environment, fostering a sense of community and sharing collective experiences.

RE: Tai Kok Tsui encourages neighbours to make a slight turn and reimagine a new vision for an old district that embraces the curation of new living experiences. It provides an avenue for turning the past into a future that values sustainability, art, culture, and creativity.

 

PUBLIC SPACE ART INTERVENTION OPEN CALL 01

The HKAC selected three public space locations in Tai Kok Tsui to open call for creative proposals, each of the locations has its uniqueness. Through this open call, the HKAC aims to receive proposals that are suitable to the site context and Tai Kok Tsui community, promoting the overall 'RE: Tai Kok Tsui' project objective, vision, mission and value. 

The HKAC invites eligible artists, designers, creative talents and the public to propose, design, develop, fabricate, install, deliver and display artworks and/or creative works for and in the selected locations for approximately 9 to 10 months (tentative artwork installation completion between  November 2024 to January 2025, and display till September/October 2025).

Each individual or participating team can submit a maximum of one proposal for one location. Individuals can only register once as either an individual or as part of a team.
