EPOXY was a New York City artist collective founded in 1982 by six Hong Kong immigrant artists: Jerry Kwan, Kwok Mang Ho, Bing Lee, Kang Lok Chung, and Eric Chan. The mission of the group is suggested by its namesake—epoxy resin—a binding agent that forms through the combination of two different compounds. The artists believed that through experimentation and collaboration they could create works that would be more than a singular contribution and would reflect their unique cross-cultural perspectives. EPOXY had their first show in 1983 at the Kwok Gallery and continued to exhibit at various venues such as the Sabrina Fung Gallery, Basement Workshop, New Museum, and Asian American Arts Centre until the early 1990s.
The EPOXY Art Group Archive includes reference materials, drawings, handwritten notes, press releases and coverage, catalogs, slides, and photographs.
