Katie de Tilly arrived in Hong Kong in 1994 when Chinese contemporary art was yet to come into international focus.
With a particular interest in the rich historical, social and cultural context in China and the development in Asia of its contemporary art scene, she founded 10 Chancery Lane Gallery in 2001, expanding it in 2006 and 2008 with warehouse project spaces in Chai Wan. Recently, Katie and her husband Georges began H-KAGE FOUNDATION to create a platform to link independent not-for-profit art institutions across Asia as well as create educational development in Hong Kong by providing a curator mentoring program.
Katie holds degrees in Science and Literature from the US as well as a diploma in Acupuncture from Hong Kong University. She contributes a monthly column called Artspy for Baccarat Magazine. She sits on the board of the Tate APAC committee, Program Advisory Committee (PAC) of RMIT University and is Co-President of the Hong Kong Art Gallery Association.
