Off-site Art: A Battle for Space

Volume 9, Number 5, September/October 2010
by Oscar Ho

Article Description

In this essay, Oscar Ho gives an overview of the history of off-site art in Hong Kong from the colonial period to the present, and from off-site art that emerged in response to the dominant conservatism of the earlier period to off-site art that became engaged with the local community, responding to the increasingly intense search for a cultural identity in the post-‘97 period.
