C&G (Clara & Gum) are two Hong Kong artists who have founded the art space: C&G Artpartment in Hong Kong, China, in 2007. With a strong concern over the local art ecology, C&G use their art to respond to social and cultural issues. Also, they help develop new flavors in the local art scene, and provide art education programs for the public in their art space. Their essential goal is to fill up the crack in the current art scene, and allow C&G Artpartment becomes an art space for idea exchanges.
In the past 6 years, C&G Artpartment has curated more than 30 art exhibitions that included more than 70 local artists to respond to the social and cultural issues in Hong Kong, including “Back To The Basic,” “0771,” “To Tsang, C.E.”, “The Preview of New West Kowloon Exhibition Venue,” “Sick Leave,” “To Tsang, C.E. 2,” “West Kowloon Cultural Revolution District,” “6,000” and the “Primitive Contemporary” art exhibition series etc. Recently, they have also hosted and participated in various exchange projects to initiate more cultural and artistic dialogues amongst artists from Hong Kong, Poland, Mumbai, Israel, South Korea, Taiwan, China etc.
