Learn to Look at and Love Art at Slow Art Day 2019
Why We Recommend it
Learn about late Hong Kong artist Hon Chi-fun works in this stimulating education programme which features close-up art appreciation and discussions led by an experienced docent.
“The circle is me, the form of my own being, and the image that I value and cherish. It is the milieu and space at the moment, the world of perfection I seek after.” – Hon Chi-fun.
Slow Art Day is a global event that takes place for one day each year. Participants are invited to look at five works of art for 10 minutes and then meet up to discuss their findings and experience. The event is organised with the aim of helping more people discover the joy of looking at and loving art.
This year’s Hong Kong edition is dedicated to local artist Hon Chi-Fun’s (1922-2019) exhibition A Story of Light, which is currently on show at Asia Society Hong Kong Center. Apart from a group discussion, the event also features a tour led by an experienced docent, who facilitates a discussion on Hon’s art, abstract art and the Chinese ideology within.
