Curated by Cosmin Costinas, Executive Director and Curator at Para Site. Garden of Six Seasons brings together works by artists from Hong Kong, mainland China, as well as the rest of the world, and is open from until Sunday 30 August. The exhibition will act as a precursor to the Kathmandu Triennale 2020, of which Costinas is serving as this year’s artistic director and Para Site as the institutional partner.
The exhibition is named after an English-style garden built by the Nepalese King 100 years ago in Kathmandu, and refers to the six seasons traditionally observed in the Kathmandu Valley, before climate change rendered obsolete the distinction between six separate seasons.
Mirroring the Kathmandu Triennale 2020, Garden of Six Seasons takes place across multiple venues, Para Site’s two floors and a larger exhibition space at Soho House Hong Kong, which expands the narrative while increasing its accessibility. Reaching out to a wider community and audience, Para Site has curated a series of digital programmes alongside the exhibition which include video tours and live panel discussions with the curator and exhibiting artists. Details of further programming will be shared on Para Site’s website, please see here.
