15 Dec 2007 - 15 Jan 2008

The University Museum and Art Gallery of The University of Hong Kong is pleased to present the 34th Annual Exhibition of The Hong Kong Visual Arts Society. The exhibition features over thirty artworks including paintings, sculpture, photography, pottery and mixed media installation by 21 local artists.

In Hong Kong, the strong presence of Chinese culture and its colonial past have created an unique east-meets-west personality for the city. This east-meets-west phenomenon is imprinted onto the minds of many local artists and has resulted in the creation of arts with a distinctly unique Hong Kong flavour.

The Hong Kong Visual Arts Society was established in 1973 by a group of like-minded artists to promote the development and enhancement of visual arts appreciation in Hong Kong. Its annual exhibition is an important event in the Hong Kong art calendar as the occasion provides an excellent opportunity for members to communicate their creative achievements and ideas to a wider public.

On show will be a range of different artworks that bring together the principles of traditional Chinese art and western aesthetic ideals. Paintings are represented by modern oil works, as well as those that combine traditional Chinese ink techniques with pictographic scripts, and abstract works. In sculpture, some of the artists use stainless steel and pottery to translate their creative inspiration into form. The unique qualities of Hong Kong culture are subtly inserted into the title of the artwork or by the clever use of materials in mixed media installations. Even the preservation of our collective memory, perhaps the most discussed topic in recent years, is reflected in some of the photographic works presenting nostalgic scenes of Hong Kong.

Participating artists: Aser BUT, Gaylord CHAN, CHO Hyun-jae, CHU Hing-wah. CHU Kai-man, Josephine CHOW, HA Bik-chuen, KUM Chi-keung, Jerry KWAN, KWOK Mang-ho, Pauline LAM, LAU Chung-hang, Bing LEE, Danny LEE Chin-fa, LI Ki-kwok, LUI Chun-kwong, Eddie LUI, MOK Yat-san, OR Shiu-wai, TONG King-sum and TSANG Fan-kwong.
