A Hong Kong-based artist primarily known as a sculptor and printmaker, Ha Bik Chuen (1925–2009) also had parallel practices: from photographing exhibitions he attended, to collecting materials such as illustrated magazines and artist portraits, and using these to construct book collages. Collectively, this material provides building blocks from which more complex histories of Hong Kong’s art ecology can be constructed.
Asia Art Archive began an initial pilot project to map, assess, and selectively digitise Ha’s archive by invitation of the Ha family in 2013. Made available to a wider audience for the first time, the archive consists of a continuously growing selection of Ha’s collage books, exhibition documentation, and exhibition catalogues.
With support from The Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust, AAA will extend its work on the Ha Bik Chuen Archive from 2016–2019. As part of the three-year project, AAA will continue to process and share Ha’s materials digitally with a wider public.
AAA currently seeks a full-time Archive Assistant on a one year fixed term contract to assist with the digitisation, arrangement and description of parts of Ha’s archive.
