comiX eXchange — Comics X Cross-media Creation Exhibition Series VI
Taking Comix Home Base as a testing ground, local comics artists and artists specialised in other medium are now working hand in hand to present comiX eXchange, a series of six cross-media and cross-exchange exhibitions. Applying the mechanism of putting together "Experienced Artist x Emerging Artist" and "Comics Artist X Artist of Other Media", this exhibition series involves six groups of artists in total. Each of these groups creates collaborative works that explore the potential of comics, offering audience an entirely new "comics reading" experience.
Presented by Hong Kong Arts Centre and Comix Home Base under the sponsorship of Create Hong Kong of the Government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, comiX eXchange not only enables artists from different disciplines and backgrounds come together and collaborate, but also calls for public participation. In addition to exhibitions, there will be master classes and workshops in which artists share their works and experiences. People interested in joining the creative profession are invited to take part and experiment with the multiplying effect of creative crossover.
In the blink of an eye comiX eXchange has come to its last round, this time featuring social media comics artist Cuson Lo and animation director Wong Ping, whose give-and-take promises us a seriously playful and playfully serious cross-media exhibition. Divided into four sections, the exhibition showcases three-dimensional exhibits, a retrospective collection of individual works, political satires, and a collaborative animation – all of which demonstrate Cuson and Wong Ping's seamless integration of popular art and current affairs as well as social issues.
Society changes with each passing day. With the two artists taking audience to survey their daily creations, the finale of comiX eXchange hopes to raise public awareness of everyday happenings.
