Things that can happen

‘Things that can happen’ is a non-profit art space located in the historic district of Sham Shui Po, Kowloon, in the heart of Hong Kong. Opening in September 2015, ‘Things’ aims to provide a platform for open experimentation and dialogue in response to the rapidly changing cultural and political context of our city. Housed on the first floor of a residential walk-up building, the site of the art space is located within one of Hong Kong’s most diverse communities, with both the highest concentration of senior citizens and new immigrants in the city – threatened by urban redevelopment, its significance in Hong Kong’s social and industrial history, as well as its geographic centrality in Hong Kong.

Conceived of as a two-year project, ‘Things’ develops exhibitions and projects, residencies, a library, and engages with issues of social concern. Exhibitions and projects aim to represent and support diverse practices and experimentations taken by local and international artists with the belief that art can take many forms, employ different methodologies, be many things.
