Hear About the Development of Hong Kong Art at Alisan Fine Arts

Why We Recommend it

Alisan Fine Arts presents a talk on the development of Hong Kong art with speakers including a selection of local artists across generations and art historian Catherine Maudsley.


Alisan Fine Arts presents a series of talks that will be held at the gallery over the summer to complement their latest exhibition Uniquely Hong Kong – A Celebration of Hong Kong Art. The first talk, held on June 30, 2020 at 6pm will  focus on the development of Hong Kong art from the 1950s to the present day.

Uniquely Hong Kong showcases over 70 pieces of artworks by 28 Hong Kong artists spanning almost a century. The exhibition highlights the diversity and talent of local artists while calling for reflection on the definition of Hong Kong art.

Moderated by Gallery Director Daphne King, the speakers at the talk are: Choi Yan-chi, an established visual artist and an active advocate of contemporary art in Hong Kong along with life-long partner and fellow artist Hon Chi-fun; Chui Tsz-hung, a renowned Hong Kong ink painter and writer about Hong Kong’s art scene since the 1960s who has played a leading role in bringing contemporary Hong Kong art into the 20th century; Fung Ming-chip, an eminent calligraphic innovator whose career spans nearly four decades and is rooted in the classical art of seal engraving; Ling Pui-sze, a 2012 CUHK graduate and winner of the Wucius Wong Creative Ink Painting Award; and Catherine Maudsley, a Hong Kong-based art historian, art advisor, curator, educator, and writer.

Speakers will discuss how the changes in Hong Kong’s social, cultural, and economic environment have affected their practice. They will also address how these changes have helped or hindered the development of Hong Kong art over the last half of the century.

The series of talks will also be live-streamed on Alisan Fine Arts’ Facebook page.
