X-Xperimenting Exhibition – Danny Yung 50 Year Creations

17 November 2021 - 14 March 2022



Artist Danny Yung is a trailblazer in the advocacy of international cultural exchange and development, as well as an experimental art pioneer. Since the 1970s, he has been keen on cross-media art creations, including film, comic, installation, video, theatre and conceptual art. In 1982, he co-founded Zuni Icosahedron (Zuni), the epitome of experimental art in Hong Kong. As Zuni’s present Co-Artistic Director, Danny has established various platforms for exchange and experimental art creations on- and off- stage. For the past 50 years, Danny’s devotion to fostering cross-cultural experimentation and exchange has persisted. In return, with the unwavering support he has received from a generous number of invited artists of various backgrounds, regions and cultures, a rich body of works involving cross-media creations and dialogues has been created.

Over the years, besides devoting himself to theatre and Tian Tian Xiang Shang series, Danny Yung has initiated a number of international cultural exchange platforms, such as the International Network of Cultural Diversity, Asia Arts Net, the World Culture Forum, the Conference of Asian Foundations and Organisations, and the City-to-City Cultural Exchange Conference, which have helped create many opportunities for the cultural exchange between Hong Kong and different cities.

This exhibition is a re-construction and re-imagination of some of Danny’s classic works of art, including Video Circle, which was exhibited in Hong Kong and Berlin; Tian Tian Xiang Shang, a large-scale flower plaque bamboo installation, which was exhibited at the National Mall in Washington, DC, the US; and Tian Tian Xiang Shang conceptual comics and figurines, which were co-created by different people and exhibited around the world.

Designer Freeman Lau, Zuni’s Co-Artistic Director cum Executive Director Mathias Woo, and Zuni’s International Exchange Director Wong Yue-wai are the guest curators of the exhibition. On display will be Danny’s visions and contributions in various areas, including cross-media and experimental art, visual and performing arts, art criticism, cultural advocacy, and the preservation and development of traditional craftsmanship.
