Para/Site Art Space is a nonprofit art organization in the center of Hong Kong. We produce, exhibit, and communicate local and international contemporary art. Our main activities include presenting an ambitious yearly program comprising ten exhibitions, publishing catalogues, and producing Hong Kong’s only bilingual visual arts publication. To complement our full-year program, we regularly organize seminars, talks, and workshops.
Para/Site Art Space was first temporarily located in Kennedy Town, Hong Kong. In April 1997, we moved to our present location in Sheung Wan, right on the Western end of Hollywood Road, Hong Kong’s renowned antique street. Our space is an old shop of around 150 square meters.
Para/Site Art Space is run by an executive director/curator, manager, and program coordinator, and governed by a board of directors.
