Open to the public from 25 February to 21 May 2023, the exhibition features works by 26 art and cultural creators across Central Asia. Co-curated by CHAT’s Wang Weiwei, alongside guest curators Slavs and Tatars, You Mi, and Alexandra Tsay, CHAT explores how Central Asian artists and designers use textiles as a medium of preservation, response, and cohesion.

As an art center with a unique textile heritage, CHAT has always fixed its gaze on art and design through the lens of textiles. Clouds, Power, and Ornament offer an in-depth exploration of the vast interconnected territory with its multi-layered politics, societies, and cultures. The exhibition explores materials & patterns used by different regions, as well as important powers that Central Asian Female artists hold which have been concealed by mainstream narratives.

Coinciding with Hong Kong’s Art Month and cultural events happening across the city, the exhibition will present a group portrait of Central Asian contemporary art and shed light on this region for Hong Kong locals as well as visiting international audiences.
