Papay Gyro Nights Art Festival 2014, Hong Kong, one of the city’s most impactful events on media and contemporary art, is making its third annual return next month. Glittering the local art scene from 4th to 18th April, the two-week inspiring programme will feature talks, exhibitions and screenings delivered by more than 10 internationally renowned artists, fostering significant media art and cultural exchange between Hong Kong and the world.
A major highlight of this year’s programme is undoubtedly the performance by Ryo Ikeshiro.
