QRL at Booked, Hong Kong’s first international art book fair organized by Tai Kwun Contemporary, January 11 – 13, 2019. As a new, large-scale art book fair in Asia, “Booked” underscores Tai Kwun Contemporary’s dedication to presenting contemporary art programmes in support of the expanding art ecology in Hong Kong. This includes providing a platform for local, regional, and international creative practitioners who use books as a medium of artistic expression to share their work.
QRL at Tai Kok Tsui Zine Fest, Bedroom, December 6, 2018. TKT Zine Fest (TKTZF) springs from the heart of Hong Kong’s DIY and print/zine art communities, as a reaction to the hyper commercialisation of art in the city. In the midst of the high-speed art industry, nobody has bothered to look underneath the glossy surface, where groups of local creatives have been forming, each member doing their respective part by laying the groundworks for a much larger network of makers/presses/designers/artists.
