step up! is a curated exhibition of performances, events, art, and architecture installations which reflect on conflict, ownership, responsibility and cultural occupation in the context of public right of ways in Hong Kong. The installations are situated on an essential typology of pedestrian right of way on Hong Kong Island, the public staircase. The exhibition is part of Very Hong Kong and is curated by Melissa Cate Christ, transverse studio.

We are looking for additional artists and designers to take part in step up! Check out the request for proposals here or send an email to with questions.
