60-Minute Cinema was a six week changing video programme at Chinese Arts Centre. During this time, our main gallery space was transformed into a comfortable seating environment specially designed for video viewing.
Three curators Dong Bingfeng, Teresa Kwong and Amy Cheng were invited to curate a 60-minute programme of moving images. Each of the curated programmes was be presented for two weeks. The curators were invited to draw on their specific areas of interest and expertise to encompass artists’ film, video and animation, from their home cities.
