Experimental art & design in public space in Hong Kong

Detour 2012: Design Renegade was a three-week art and design exhibition in Hong Kong produced by the Ambassadors of Design and curated by John Bela and Justine Topfer.   The curatorial concept was to explore niches and loopholes in the social and spatial fabric of the city and exploit them for public benefit – prototyping new concepts for public space.

The curators brought an international cadre of artists and designers including Candy Chang, N55, Raumlabor, and Andrew Kudless and paired them with up and coming Hong Kong artists Caroline Mak, Kasey Wong, Wong Tin Yan and others. The exhibition site – a former police station in Wan Chai – was transformed into a lively, experiemental playground that fostered inquiry and generosity among the hundreds of visitors.
