The Peak (Hong Kong) - - Art & Design -

Girl power comes to the fore at Para Site’s sum­mer ex­hi­bi­tion, “In Search of Miss Ruth­less”, which runs un­til Septem­ber 1. Cu­rated by Hera Chan and David Xu Bor­gonjon, the group ex­hi­bi­tion uses beauty pageants as a start­ing point to ques­tion what it means to em­body wom­anly char­ac­ter­is­tics or fem­i­nist val­ues, draw­ing from var­ied sources, in­clud­ing French poet and lit­er­ary critic Hélène Cixous. A se­ries of pub­lic pro­grammes in Hong Kong and Bei­jing are run­ning con­cur­rently to the ex­hi­bi­tion.
