It aims to promote the critical dissemination of contemporary visual arts practices and affiliated artforms through 1a space programme drawn from Hong Kong and international arena.

Throughout the years, 1a space has developed a reputation as one of the Hong Kong's leading contemporary visual art organizations. 1a space has produced and organized more than 100 exhibitions and activities, and has been active in international exchanges, cultural activities and festivals, as well as interactive community art, arts education, art criticism and publications. 1a space has played a vital role in developing new frontiers for the visual art scene in Hong Kong and abroad. One of its major achievements has been to establish contemporary visual art within a wide viewing public, making it more popular and accessible.

1a space has organized quality and forward-looking programs that feature a wide spectrum of contemporary visual arts. Through the operation of the gallery and the organization of projects, 1a space means to create an ideal environment for artists to exhibit with open access and freedom of creation.
