Abstract (English)

Catalogue and twenty-one cards to accompany a group exhibition of contemporary art from Nova Scotia, initiated by the Contemporary Arts Projects Society (CAPS) and curated by Oscar Ho Hing-Kay (Exhibitions Director of the Hong Kong Art Centre). While describing the curatorial process for this series of seven two-person exhibitions, Hing-Kay compares the act of being a curator to that of being a superficial visitor (tourist). The cards contain brief interpretations of the artworks, photographic documentation, brief biographical notes on the artists and images of popular Nova Scotian icons (used to indicate the location of the artworks). 2 bibl. ref.
