FAME 2014 Journal – Grace (Adelaide Festival Centre, Australia)

I like to explore a place’s history when I move to a new city. I usually love walking around after work. There is a street called North Terrace which attracts me the most in Adelaide. North Terrace is often seen as Adelaide’s cultural boulevard since it is linked with significant government buildings and cultural institutions such as Adelaide Festival Centre, Adelaide Convention Centre, Art Gallery of South Australia, South Australian Museum, State Library, Government House, Parliament House, Campuses of University of South Australia and University of Adelaide etc. In just a few hours walk along North Terrace, you will get a glimpse of Adelaide’s cultural sense. Most of the cultural institutions are free admission and that’s why it is attractive for me to understand more about Adelaide by visiting different museums every weekend.

Featured Event
 
K11 Art Foundation - INSIDE CHINA Hong Kong Station
K11 Art Foundation partners with Palais de Tokyo in a Sino-French group exhibition exploring new Chinese Art Landscape.
 
Dedicated to the discovery and presentation of emrging art scenes in China and France, a long-term collaboration between K11 Art Foundation and Palais de Tokyo is inaugurated with the exhibition Inside China – L’Intérieur du Geant. This exhibition was first exhibited at Palais de Tokyo last year in October, and it is rotated to Hong Kong this year with two new participated artists; in which it presents six Chinese artists in dialogue with five French artists.
 
The artists negotiate over-production, monumentality, and rapid development, by abiding by their own temporalities, turning internal investigation into strangeness of material fact. The Chinese artists capture something ineffable which is deeply connected to the self and engaged with their immediate surroundings and the world: a spirit, an attitude, a sensitivity, and an individual mode of existence. Their works placed in a new context in dialogue with those of the French artists, forming new adjacencies, and productive interferences.
