Recap on Arty Hour@HKAAA (Mar 2015) - Overseas Arts Management Experience
The second Arty Hour@HKAAA was held successfully at Boom on 17 March 2015. We were delighted to have more than 20 friends in the arts sector joining us to learning more about the arts management and administration practices in different parts of the world.

With the theme “Overseas Arts Management Experience”, we have invited the 6 fellows of the Fellowships for Arts Management Experience (FAME) Programme to share on their internship experience in renowned arts organizations in Australia, Poland, Taiwan and the United Kingdom.
 

 
1: Ms Evelyn Yip (Manager (Music) 1, Leisure and Cultural Services Department)
Internship Organization: Sydney Theatre Company (Australia)

 
Evelyn shares that Sydney Theatre Company (STC) makes use of the sophisticated customer relation management system called Tessitura, which facilitates market validation by recoding audience’s information including purchase history and donations. Corporate partnership is an important source of income for STC, and Evelyn finds the tailored programmes STC prepares for its major sponsors interesting, for example, Audi Night with the Actors is a post-show Q and A session between the audience and the cast, held once for every production of STC. Evelyn is also impressed by STC’s dedicated efforts in designing education programmes tailor-made for students of different age groups, such as School Day and the new scheme Young Wharfies.

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.
