A two-part exhibition to mark 35 years of art "inheritance" starts at MTR Sheung Shui Station today (26 May 2008), moving to Yau Tong Station on 18 June. The exhibition celebrates the inheritance of artistic insights and inspiration passed down from one generation of Hong Kong artists to the next.
The latest "art in mtr – roving art" exhibition entitled "Inheritance – 35th Anniversary Exhibition of the Hong Kong Visual Arts Society" is a collection of two and three-dimensional works by 13 of Hong Kong's most talented artists. Photography, acrylic painting and a mixed media collage are featured among the two dimensional works while sculptures and installations in the display of three-dimensional works use wood-fired ceramics, stainless steel and paper origami to reflect the artists' views on life and art.
Jointly organised by the MTR Corporation and the Art Promotion Office of the Leisure & Cultural Services Department, the roving art exhibition is the finale of the "Inheritance" series which comprised three exhibitions. Half of the 13 art pieces on show in the MTR event are being seen publicly for the first time.
"From this exhibition, passengers are able to appreciate the development of Hong Kong visual arts from traditional drawing to the use of computer graphic design. The artists represent different generations in the Hong Kong art world but come together in creativity and share a common passion to promote visual arts in Hong Kong, passing the torch from generation to generation," said Mrs Miranda Leung, General Manager – Corporate Relations of MTR Corporation.
Part 1 of the exhibition at MTR Sheung Shui Station will be held from today to 15 June. It features the three-dimensional works of Chu Hing-wa, Ha Bik-chuen, Kum Chi-keung, Lau Chung-hang, Lee Chin-fai, Eddie Lui and Samuel O. The two-dimensional works in Part 2 will be shown from 18 June to 4 July at Yau Tong Station. They are the creations of Gaylord Chan, Cho Hyun-jai, Josephine Chow, Chu Kai-man, Kwok Mang-ho and Tsang Fan-kwang.
