The inaugural season will introduce a strong line up of programmes including two major exhibitions and exciting public events and workshops. Paying homage to the golden years of Hong Kong’s textile industry, Welcome to the Spinning Factory! at The D. H. Chen Foundation Gallery will showcase over 100 historical items including archival documents and machines generously donated by mill owners, workers and textile veterans, in collaboration with Turner Prize-winning multidisciplinary collective Assemble and design firm HATO.

CHAT’s thematic exhibition Unfolding: Fabric of Our Life will bring together works and performances by 17 contemporary artists and collectives from 12 countries and territories in the Asia-Pacific region. The exhibition uses textile as testimony to facts that have faded in modern history, hidden socio-political agendas and personal and collective experiences of textile labour in the era of accelerated globalisation.
