Mur Nomade is pleased to announce Hilda Chan as the curator selected for the second edition of the Open Call for Young Curators, with her project Sojourn with Stranger.

Willing to encourage and promote new curatorial ideas in Hong Kong, Mur Nomade organizes an annual Open Call for Young Curators. For the second edition, emerging independent curators were invited to submit proposals for a limited-edition curated art book. The programme aims at providing guidance to the selected curator through the research and production of the proposed book, and ultimately launching it at Mur Nomade’s space, in the South Island Cultural District of Hong Kong.

The proposal was selected by an independent judging panel of art professionals including Ingrid Chu, Public Programmes Curator at Asia Art Archive; Yeung Yang, art writer and curator; and Yung Sau Mui, Programme Director of the Hong Kong Open Printshop.

Hilda Chan is a Hong Kong-based curator, artist and cultural practitioner. ‘As a curator, I aim to foster cross-disciplinary and media collaborations. I have a particular interest in media and video related art projects… I am interested in topics about self and identities, gender roles, cross-cultural and media representations, and media and image interpretations in relation to personal experience and memories,’ Chan explained about her curatorial practice.

Mur Nomade is excited to work with Chan and the artists and book designer she proposed, and accompany them in the production of the limited-edition curated art book. It will be launched on 3rd December 2016.
