Arty Hour@HKAAA (Sep 2015) – Summer Cultural Traveling in Europe – Holland, UK & Czech Republic
The topic of coming ‘Arty Hour@HKAAA’ is “Summer Cultural Traveling in Europe”. Each summer, many art lovers like to go to Europe especially for international art festivals and exhibitions, such as La Biennale di Venezia, Berliner Theatertreffen, Edinburgh International Festival and Edinburgh Festival Fringe. What new insights could people learn from visiting and participating these festivals? How would international cultural events influence the art scene of Hong Kong?

We are glad to have Mr William Chan, Performing Art Critic and Project Manager at the International Association of Theatre Critics (Hong Kong), Mr Law Kwok-ho, Chairman of Hong Kong Association of Theatre Technicians and Scenographers, Producer of PQ2015 Hong Kong Booth and Mr Alan Tang, Founder of Drama Lab and Black Curtain Theatre Company, a new drama group that aims for re-interpretation of classic theatre, to talk about their experience in Holland Festival, International Exhibition of Scenography and Theatre and Edinburgh Festival respectively. Being one of the art festivals with longest history, Holland Festival is well-known for its innovative and avant-garde programmes. William's trip is supported by the Arts Development Fund of the Home Affairs Bureau, the Government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region.

‘Arty Hour@HKAAA’ is a causal occasion for thoughts to collide and wild ideas to flow. We would like to invite all fellow arts practitioners and anyone with an interest in arts & culture to join the gathering.


Come, share your views, and experience with us!

Featured Event
 
K11 Art Foundation and Palais de Tokyo - Tianzhuo Chen's Solo Exhibition
Co-presented by the K11 Art Foundation and Palais de Tokyo (Paris), this exhibition is Tianzhuo Chen’s solo debut outside China, indeed a great achievement for young Tianzhuo Chen, who is known as one of the most promising artists of our generation. The exhibition has been officially launched to public on June 24th and will run until September 13th, 2015. This is the second exhibition out of the three-year-collaboration between K11 Art Foundation and Palais de Tokyo after the well-received “Inside China- L’Intérieur du Géant”. Both organisations share the same mission and vision in promoting young talents through world-tour exhibitions, artist residencies and educational programmes.
 
Chen’s work revolves around rituals and the symbolism associated with it, through his bold and whimsical way of presentations, Chen reveals his intimate thoughts towards moral attitudes and beliefs. Chen employed a narrative way to present powerful messages and philosophy through his work, which include a wide range of mediums such as paintings, sculptures, videos, installations and performance. With the use of vibrant colours, surreal and kitsch imagery, Chen’s artwork is often related to LGBT, hip-hop, the London rave scene, Japanese butoh, New York voguing and the fashion industry.
 
The courage and creativity to produce work which brings surprises to the audience is incredibly challenging, but Chen has an ambition to transport his profound philosophy to the audience through bright colours, disturbing scenes and emotional approaches, to explore the relationship between reality and spirituality.
