They say life imitates art. What makes Ying stand out as an independent curator is her inventive approach. She centres on what she calls “the boundaries of collaboration” between curators, artists and the community. From 2006 to 2012, she was the curator of the Chinese Arts Centre in Manchester, England, delivering a wide-ranging artistic programme. Then, working independently from 2013, she co-curated international exhibitions, resulting in her being awarded the Asian Cultural Council Fellowship in 2015.
Back in Hong Kong in 2014, Ying founded the Art Appraisal Club, a platform to encourage critical thinking and discussion by disseminating exhibition news, reviews and art-related essays. She’s also the curator of the Hong Kong Pavilion at this year’s 57th Venice Biennale.
