11 Sep 2014 - 26 Oct 2014

The University Museum and Art Gallery and the Department of Music, The University of Hong Kong are delighted to co-presents QU4RTETS, a collaborative response to T.S. Eliot's Four Quartets, featuring 16 paintings by the distinguished Japanese-American artist Makoto Fujimura, and Boston-based artist and teacher Bruce Herman.

QU4RTETS grew out of a dinner-party conversation in New York City in 2009, when several friends discovered that they all took deep enjoyment and inspiration from a common text: T.S. Eliot's Four Quartets, a monumental poem acknowledged as one of the masterpieces of the twentieth century. What has followed is a collaborative interdisciplinary project, featuring paintings by Makoto Fujimura and Bruce Herman, and an original piano and string quartet composition by Christopher Theofanidis.

This exhibition has been generously supported by the United Overseas Bank, and it will be accompanied by an extensive education programme with lectures, as well as music, dance performances, drama and a fashion show.
