Michelle Wong

Michelle Wong is a Researcher at Asia Art Archive. Based in Hong Kong, she leads the Archive’s research projects in the city, including the Hong Kong Art History Research Project, organized in collaboration with the Hong Kong Museum of Art: a long-term endeavor started in 2013 to create a publicly available resource platform to support art historical research on recent art in Hong Kong.

Her other projects include the Ha Bik Chuen Archive Pilot Project, which maps out exhibition documentation from 1960-2000 taken by late Hong Kong artist Ha Bik Chuen (1925–2009), alongside other materials that were previously unavailable to the public. This was accompanied by the exhibition “Excessive Enthusiasm: Ha Bik Chuen and the Archive as Practice.” The Hong Kong Art History Research Project and Ha Bik Chuen Archive Project form a key part of an undergraduate course Asia Art Archive has developed in collaboration with the Fine Arts Department of the University of Hong Kong.

Wong is part of “Ambitious Alignments: New Histories of Southeast Asian Art,” a research program funded through the Getty Foundation’s Connecting Art Histories initiative, developed by The Power Institute Foundation for Art & Visual Culture at the University of Sydney in cooperation with regional partners, National Gallery Singapore and The Institute of Technology, Bandung.
