Haegue Yang’s Non-Folding – Animalesque Tipping #46, 2013.
HONG KONG - I vividly remember one of my assignments during my time working at M+ in Hong Kong’s West Kowloon Cultural District, for whom I conducted a study of the city’s visual arts ecology. As Hong Kong's leading contemporary art space and one of the oldest and most active independent art centres in Asia, Para Site took centre stage in my study.
Founded in 1996, Para Site was Hong Kong's first contemporary art institution and plays a crucial role in producing exhibitions, publications and educational projects aimed at forging a critical understanding of the local and international dialogue surrounding art and society.

This year Sotheby’s Hong Kong will play its part in supporting Para Site’s work, by hosting the gallery’s annual fundraising auction. Their team has brought together some of the most promising emerging artists and leading figures from the world stage to donate an extraordinary collection of works. Exhibited in Sotheby’s Hong Kong Gallery until 4 November, highlights include works by Larry Clark, Federico Herrero, Ming Wong, Ai Weiwei, Harland Miller and Haegue Yang. All proceeds support Para Site’s continuing development and forthcoming programme. Please come and support this exciting and meaningful event.
