Bouyei Dance 1, 2013, oil on canvas, 100 × 210 cm by Wang Yin
How might we live between constant planning and frustration, against the currents of the unknown and volatile times? How can we move forward amidst profuse confusion and predicament? These are the core questions that The Racing Will Continue, The Dancing Will Stay seeks to explore.
The exhibition title comes from a saying popularized in Hong Kong and Chinese mainland civil society since the mid-1980s. The phrase suggests the speaker’s expectations for a better future and the collective imagination of effective social systems.
Showcasing the work of twenty-four artists and groups, this exhibition considers the body and performativity as a method of responding to the absence and presence of the subject.
