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

Twenty students from Hong Kong paired with 20 students from Melbourne have contributed a part each to a composite drawing based upon a shared image prompt. The drawing halves are brought together in correspondence to produce single works shown in this exhibition and at RMIT University, School of Art, Melbourne from March 2024.

Individually students have responded in various 2D media to photographic image strips (42 cm tall and a few centimetres wide) that have been sampled from the 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 left edge to complete theirs. In the process, they negotiated with their collaborating partner to exchange their ideas and interpretations, approaches, mediums, and possibilities. Discussions took place via emails, files, or online shared folders. Some works are seamless and harmonized, while others are contrasting and collagic. All are fascinating and contribute to building a ‘picture’ of the community of students in the BP201 program in Hong Kong and Melbourne.
