ArtWalk Extra

ArtWalk Extra promotes local Hong Kong artists and can be seen while walking from gallery to gallery on Hong Kong's historic streets and back alleys – this year, there will be a particular emphasis on artists' performances done in the street.

The ArtWalk Extra artists for ArtWalk 2011 are:

Alwin Reamillo – Hong Kong ArtWalk artist-in-residence. Visiting Filipino/Australian artist, Alwin Reamillo will give a street performance as a Filipino balut seller who visits each ArtWalk participating gallery

Clara Cheung & Gum Cheng Yee Man – a drawing performance done
along the ArtWalk map route

David Boyce – random photographic installations mounted throughout the ArtWalk area

Ducky Tse Chi Tak – street display of photography of Choi Yuen Village & West Kowloon

Nadim Abbas & Joao Vasco Paiva – a joint installation in the back alleys

Sushan Chan – a specially designed poster to be posted around Hong Kong

and "Drummer", pushed on metal trolleys through Hong Kong streets

Vivian Poon – a specially designed consumer item


The Pottery Workshop & Wai Che Printing – handmade cups made by members of The Pottery Workshop and imprinted with moveable type from the historic Wai Che printing shop will be shown. Visit Wai Che Printing to see their printing shop on ArtWalk night - located on historic Wing Lee Street; a unique terrace of tong lau buildings and formerly the centre of a thriving print industry district during the 1950s to the late 1990s 


Society for Community Organization (SoCO) – a display of SoCO's social action and policy work and featuring 'kid's photography': Sham Shui Po children tell their own stories through their photography
