Design Renegade directs the attention of the public to explore our “right to the city”. With independent curator Justine Topfer, Rebar Group (now Ghel Studio) co-curated this annual art and design exhibition in Hong Kong. Working with the Hong Kong Ambassadors of Design and local arts producer Aidan Li, we assembled a group of local and international artists and designers to act as agents of urban change, "Design Renegades." Participanting artists and the public were asked to seek niches and loopholes in the social and spatial fabric of the city and to exploit these loopholes for public benefit. Hong Kong Ambassador of Design’s board member Jehan Chu noted, “How far can we bend the rules without breaking them?”
As a Designer and Marketing Associate at Rebar, I worked on the curatorial team for this international exhibition. I co-wrote the concept proposal with Justine Topfer, worked on the curatorial team, selected participating artists, wrote and edited essays for both the exhibition catalog and marketing material.
