The Sparkle! exhibition series sets out to bring art into daily life by demonstrating the aspirations of the new generation of artists. The last Sparkle! exhibition in the series is After One Hundred put together by guest curator Cheng Yee-man (Gum).
Gum has invited artists to launch a series of ongoing and repeating creative processes to produce long-term documentation recording the changes that have taken place at specific sites at Oi! and in its vicinity over the past two years. Each of the artists has chosen a different entry point and engaged different communities and individuals to collaborate in their projects.
