WMA Exhibition: ‘WOMEN 我們 : FROM HER TO HERE’
Jan 21 – May 31, 2022
12:00 – 19:00 (Closed on Monday)
WMA Space (8/F Chun Wo Commercial Centre, 23-29 Wing Wo Street, Central)
Become an energy of queer powers — to be fluid, to exist in liminality, and to bend but not break.
WMA is honoured to present the ‘WOMEN 我們’ series with San Francisco Chinese Culture Center (CCC). Inaugurated in 2011 Shanghai, ‘WOMEN我們’ (a Mandarin homophone meaning both ‘women’ and ‘we’) curated by Abby Chen was the first exhibition to address feminism and queerness in China at the time. It represents agency and belonging and focuses on issues such as feminism, gender diversity, and sexual equality.
This exhibition will be presented as a two-phase dialogue – Phase One will be an adaptation of the series’s latest iteration, “From Her to Here”, curated by Hoi Leung. It brings together works by 6 multidisciplinary artists, Chen Han Sheng, Huang Meng Wen, Heesoo Kwon, Madeleine Lim, Nicole Pun, TT Takemoto to embody a “queer state of mind”. The exhibition suggests how a nonbinary approach towards navigating the world lends to new questions about the seemingly straight and rigid dicotomies that surround us.
