Para Site is pleased to announce the fourth edition of our summer
exhibition series curated by an emerging curator. This fourth edition
follows on from the successes of Imagine thereís no country, Above us only
our cities curated by Jims Lam Chi Hang in 2015; That Has Been, and May Be
Again curated by Leo Li Chen and Wu Mo in 2016; and In Search of Miss
Ruthless curated by Hera Chan and David Xu Borgonjon in 2017. We are now
organising an open call for proposals by curators at an early stage in
their professional careers to curate an exhibition which will be shown at
Para Site in the summer of 2018. This platform is devised to provide the
opportunity for an emerging curator to develop one of their first major
projects benefiting from all the resources, support, guidance, and
infrastructure made available for other Para Site exhibitions.

This project is open to curators irrespective of their residence, but the
selected exhibition will have a meaningful connection with Hong Kong and
its audiences.
