香港藝術雙年展」自1975年開始舉辦,旨在透過公開比賽的形式,讓全港藝術工作者送交作品參賽,從而選出優秀作品,以反映香港視藝的發展,讓市民得香港視藝的最新面目。由1975年至2005年,香港藝術館已舉辦十五屆「香港藝術雙年展」及選出多位優秀得獎者,歷屆得獎者在香港藝壇上均成就卓越,是香港藝術發展的中流砥柱。

近十多年來,由策展人策展的主題性國際雙年展、三年展等不斷湧現,為突顯「香港藝術雙年展」的獨特性質和使命,雙年展將由2009年起重新命名為「香港當代藝術雙年獎」。同時,香港藝術館亦於2008年5月至2010年間,舉辦「香港藝術:開放‧對話」系列,由本地及國際策展人策劃主題性的展覽,藉著不同形式的策展與「雙年獎」及地區和國際上的主題策展作出對話。

The “Hong Kong Art Biennial Exhibition” was first held in 1975. The aim of this competition is to provide an open platform for the exhibition of excellent works of art by Hong Kong artists. The Biennial carries out its mission by surveying the development of the Hong Kong arts scene every two years and exhibiting the latest works of local visual art to the public. From 1975 to 2005, fifteen Biennial Exhibitions were held. Many award winners from past Biennial Exhibitions have since become accomplished artists playing vital roles in both local and international art scenes.

Over the past ten years, many independently curated international biennial and triennial exhibitions have been presented around the world. With the aim to distinguish the unique nature and mission of the “Hong Kong Art Biennial Exhibition”, our event will be named the “Hong Kong Contemporary Art Biennial Awards” (HKCABA) from 2009. In parallel, the Hong Kong Museum of Art launches a new exhibition series titled “Hong Kong Art: Open Dialogue” curated by local and international guest curators from May 2008 to 2010. We hope that the “Open Dialogue” exhibition series with its diversified curatorial concepts will complement the “Biennial Awards” and open up further dialogue within the context of local and international trends.
