CFCCA presents A Season for Change
July to December 2018
For six months from July to December we will be embarking on ‘A Season for Change’ – a programme of exhibitions and events to encourage discussion about environmental issues facing today’s world. Throughout this time we will be using contemporary art to raise awareness and look to the future to explore ways in which the individual and communities can make a difference.
The exhibition programme opens with ‘Aquatopia‘ which, through a mixture of participatory art works and new media works creates a place for engaging and reflecting on water – what it means to our communities and our environments, and the impact of water scarcity and water pollution from a global perspective. It features the works of six artists from China, Hong Kong and the UK.
Later in the year from 12 October CFCCA presents two solo shows. ‘Hong Kong Soup’ in Gallery 2 presents a selection of award-winning photography by Mandy Barker, which raises awareness of the plastic polluting our oceans by beautifully cataloguing the washed up plastic debris found on the beaches of Hong Kong. In Gallery 1 there will be the chance to see selected film and sculptural installations by Taiwanese artist Charwei Tsai who has spent many years working closely with indigenous communities in Taiwan. This exhibition will include a new film commission examining the way of life of three different tribes linked by a common thread of ‘eco-living’.
CFCCA’s events programme continues with Thursday Late events taking place on the last Thursday of every month. This is a chance to view the exhibitions at the later time of 6pm to 8pm as well as the opportunity to join a talk, screening or workshop that offers insight and the chance to explore further some of the themes. Check our whats on page for more details and check on social media for updates.
This exhibition will include an activity trail for all ages and we will be holding free family friendly exhibition tours on Saturday 28 July and Saturday 25 August at 11.30am to 12.30pm. Booking on these tours is advisable, you can do this on our eventbrite page here.
