Chin-Yin Chong (Taiwan/Hong Kong) is a curator and co-founder of Arts Collective, a creative collective based in Hong Kong, consisting of curators and researchers in Hong Kong and Taiwan. Her interests reside in the intersection between cultural influence, experience, artist practice and community. Working collectively and independently, her current research explores contemporary arts in geocultural contexts and seeks to further elucidate current events through art and collaboration.

During her residency at Delfina Foundation, Chin-Yin plans to observe the art scene in London and connect with arts practitioners, to learn more about the relationships between their practice and the cultural and natural environment. With a background working in institutions, she also intends to explore the institutions and art spaces, and how their programmes connect with local communities and abroad.

Currently, Chin-Yin works as Assistant Curatorial Manager at Hong Kong Arts Centre, while at the same time conducting independent art and multidisciplinary projects in East Asia. Selected exhibitions and performances include, Æthereal (National Taiwan Museum of Art, Taichung, 2021), MMXX (Art at a Time Like This, New York, 2021), The bird sings, for it has a song (Floating Project, Hong Kong, 2021), Borrowed Scenery (Cattle Depot, Hong Kong, 2019), Flanêur (Tsim Sha Tsui Promenade, Hong Kong, 2019), Very Natural Actions (Taikwun Contemporary, Hong Kong, 2019), Living Heritage (Fukutake House, Setouchi Triennale 2019, Japan), A Tree Fell in the Forest, and No One’s There (Power Station of Art, Shanghai, 2018), and Post Flu Syndrome ( Hong Kong Arts Centre, Hong Kong, 2018).
