TongLau Space is a new Artist Run association, to bring lively AIR program to Hong Kong and to create more choices and opportunities for artists from overseas.
AIR program in HK are mainly held by institutions, museums and art centres by invitation.Տ Limited space and high rent alway are issues in HK, it is hard to provide housing, workshop and exhibition space for short term overseas artist by art association and independence artist studio. However, we strongly believe that AIR program is not only good for Hong Kong, but also good for artist around the world.Տ We would like to try to create more opportunities for artist who are passionate in art,Տ cultural exchange and interested in exploring the culture of Hong Kong and making new art in Hong Kong. We welcome different status artists to join our program, such as experienced artists, fresh artists or art students from overseas.
