For years, Para Site was a leading light in an otherwise gloomy art scene. Founded by seven artists in 1996, it was one of the few non-profit art spaces in Hong Kong. These days, the city’s art scene is finally thriving, with international attention and no shortage of local shows, but Para Site still holds the torch for progressive contemporary art. The space is known for edgy exhibitions like A Journal of the Plague Year, which looked at the cultural and social impact of the SARS outbreak in 2003. Now located in a two-storey space in Quarry Bay, Para Site has more room than ever to fulfil its ambitions.
