Dear Discussion List,

If any CRUMBs will be in Hong Kong for ISEA, Iím very happy to announce this fabulous Professional Development Course, based on the short course that I run in London in February each year

It will be great to see you all in Hong Kong, just get in touch if youíll be there!




Curating Art After New Media HK

Curating Art After New Media HK is a short professional development course targeted for Hong Kong-based curators who specialize or are interested in contemporary and new media art. This course aims to provide up-to-date professional knowledge in the field for Hong Kong-based curators, and is customised for Hong Kong curatorial professionals to provide a unique training opportunity for rapid upskilling and international networking.

The course will explore a wide range of themes, locations and combine local and international speakers in a workshop-style environment for idea exchange, as well as site visits to local key art organisations, tentatively set on May 16th-22nd, 2016, tactically timed to coincide with the ISEA2016 (International Symposium on Electronic Art). Course participants will have access to ISEA2016ís programme of satellite events, exhibitions and artists talk and will meet with key members of the international new media art curating community.
