** Established in Hong Kong in 2012, Mur Nomade is a place for creative encounters. Managed on a non-profit-making basis, we operate as both a curatorial office and an art gallery. The proceeds of the gallery help funding our curatorial programmes: collaborative art projects, cross-disciplinary and cultural exchanges, open calls for young curators, performances, workshops and residencies. Our name is the French for ‘nomadic wall’ as we present site-specific curatorial projects in alternative venues all around Hong Kong, in addition to the regular programme of our space in the South Island Cultural District. To imagine and conceive our projects, we invite local and international artists, curators, writers and teachers. We like bold ideas, and we are convinced that confronting viewpoints and going out of comfort zones support creativity, stimulate emulation and encourage experimentation.
