HKwalls is pleased to be collaborating with Schoeni Projects to present disCONNECT HK, an expanded adaptation of disCONNECT LDN – an inaugural exhibition at Schoeni Projects LDN, an 1850s Victorian townhouse in South West London. disCONNECT LDN presented site-specific works from 10 artists working across seven countries, and received enthusiastic acclaim from both press and public. disCONNECT HK presents an array of artworks from the London exhibition and continues the disCONNECT journey, promoting and celebrating cross-cultural exchange with the addition of four Hong Kong artists, and by taking over a restored 1950s Hong Kong historic tenement building and presenting highlights at Hysan’s Urban Sky. disCONNECT HK runs in-person from 11 October through 29 November 2020 and virtually from 24 October.
Full list of participating artists:
Adam Neate (UK); Aida Wilde (Iran); Alex Fakso (Italy); Mr. Cenz (UK); David Bray (UK); Go Hung (Hong Kong); Jaffa Lam (Hong Kong); Kacey Wong (Hong Kong); Herakut (Germany); Icy and Sot (Iran); Isaac Cordal (Spain); Wong Ting Fung (Hong Kong); Vhils (Portugal); Zoer (Italy).
