PRESS RELEASE: Hong Kong’s Divide by Zero™ Collection opens pioneering virtual Art Space

(Hong Kong, December 1st, 2020) Divide by Zero™ Collection, in collaboration with Redfish Team, opens a pioneering virtual Art Space in Hong Kong. This new digital Art promotes arts in new innovative means beyond traditional brick-and-mortar spaces.

Since 2019, Divide by Zero™ has regularly explored digital alternatives to present its compendium of works. In April 2020, the Collection, in association with ArtGate VR – a Canadian Art start-up, rolled out its first exhibition, ‘Shaped by: Thirty years within Four Walls’, in the Facebook Oculus virtual reality platform. Over a thousand people globally experienced the digital show, which affirmed the Collection’s belief in technology as a highly efficient mean to reach out to, and curate for wider global audiences.

The Art Space that Divide by Zero opens today adds to the Collection’s digital resources. It pays homage to one of the Collection’s main source of ideas – Hong Kong’s inimitable urbanism. The Collection also chose to open the space with its second virtual exhibition – ‘So, Let’s Talk About Millennials’, initially aired in virtual reality through ArtGate VR in September 2020. 

This second exhibition presents a body of works acquired between 2018 and 2020. The exhibit depicts three curatorial interpretations the Collection observed as emergent, starting in 2010 – when Millennials began to adult. The show elaborates on Nostalgia, Urbanism and Superflat Expressionism, through works by a group of emerging and established artists, including Adriana Oliver (Spain), Sam Heydt (United States), Lu Xinjian (China), Julian Opie (United Kingdom), Ink Yeong Baek (Korea), Kyne (Japan) and Lousy (Hong Kong).

The virtual Art Space is now accessible for free via the Collection’s website. The exhibition is also presently available in virtual reality through the Artgate VR app in Oculus.
