For the project Hong Kong Solos by Ari Benjamin Meyers that Spring produced for An exposition, not an exhibition (2017), Meyers invited 6 composers to create brief, jewel-like works to be performed live: Shane Aspegren, Steve Hui, Charles Kwong, Lam Lai, Vanissa Law, and GayBird Leung. These solos are then performed by staff members at six arts organizations across the city: Michelle Wong at Asia Art Archive, Samantha Kwok at Hong Kong Arts Centre, Tom Morgan at M+, Olivia Chow at Para Site, Alice Wong at soundpocket, and Chantal Wong at Things that can happen.

Michelle Wong is a Researcher at Asia Art Archive (AAA). Based in Hong Kong, her projects include the Hong Kong Art History Research Project, organized in collaboration with the Hong Kong Museum of Art (2013-5); the Ha Bik Chuen Archive Project (2013-ongoing), which was accompanied by exhibition ‘Excessive Enthusiasm: Ha Bik Chuen and the Archive as Practice’ (2015); an undergraduate course developed in collaboration with Fine Arts Department, The University of Hong Kong; and London, Asia, a collaborative project with the Paul Mellon Centre for Studies in British Art (PMC). Wong is part of “Ambitious Alignments: New Histories of Southeast Asian Art,” a research program funded through the Getty Foundation’s Connecting Art Histories initiative. She was also Assistant Curator for the eleventh edition Gwangju Biennale, South Korea, directed by Maria Lind, titled ‘The Eighth Climate: What Does Art Do?”.

An exposition, not an exhibition was developed during Ari Benjamin Meyers’ two residencies at Spring Workshop in the summer and fall of 2016, and stems from his ongoing research into the essence of live musical performance and the questions surrounding its protocols for audiences, performers and institutions.

The Kunsthalle for Music is commissioned by Witte de With Center for Contemporary Art (Rotterdam) together with Spring Workshop (Hong Kong) and will make additional appearances at locations to be announced. An exposition, not an exhibition at Spring Workshop (March 2017) unfolds the Kunsthalle’s foundational themes, and will be followed by a congress at Witte de With (May 2017), then punctuated by an inaugural take-over, featuring a series of new commissions also at Witte de With (January 2018).
