Introduction
 
Let’s Arty Hour!

‘Arty Hour@HKAAA’ is an arts and cultural salon held every three months by the Hong Kong Arts Administrators Association. The regular gathering will serve as an open platform for everyone in the arts scene to update each other on new happenings, exchange ideas and to facilitate arts and cultural development in the long run. ‘Arty Hour@HKAAA’ will feature a specific topic of discussion in response to the recent happenings and developments of the arts scene. We embrace an open forum with free discussions. Special guests will be invited to share their views and experience based on the topic. The first ‘Arty Hour@HKAAA’ will be held in December 2014.

The topic of the first ‘Arty Hour@HKAAA’ is “Performances in Community Spaces”. Various outdoor performances were held in November, including Freespace Fest 2014, Clockenflap Music and Arts Festival, i-Dance Festival and Adoring Arts - Wandering in the World of Hong Kong Literature, etc. What are the characteristics of performances held in different spaces? And how can urban spaces be used for arts groups to extend arts participation and reach residents of remote districts?

 
Centre St, Sai Ying Pun x Lucky Dragon Restaurant, Shek Kip Mei

We are glad to have Ms Lucy Lu, Director of Kwang Hwa Information and Culture Centre and Mr Ong Yong Lock, Artistic Director of Unlock Dancing Plaza, to be our special guests. They are going to share with us experience of holding performances outdoor and in a tea dance Chinese restaurant in old communities.

With the theme ‘Old Town Revival’ as one of the key programmes in Taiwan Culture Festival 2014, Ms Lu and her team brought numerous outdoor performances to local communities such as Sai Ying Pun and Lei Yue Mun. Her team has also made a video on Sai Ying Pun, in which local and Taiwanese artists sing to celebrate history and memory, paying tribute to one of the oldest communities in Hong Kong.
 
Themed “City and Body—Reconstruction”, Unlock Dancing Plaza held dancing performances at Lucky Dragon Restaurant in Shek Kip Mei, a classic venue where people go for traditional tea dance. Experiencing the tea dance culture of the 60s and 70s, young dancers mixed traditional tea dance with modern dance as they performed with the aid of installations and video recordings, delivering a crossover of the new and the old. The young get the opportunity of revisiting lifestyle of the elder generation.

‘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!

The first FAME programme was held in 2013-14, the 4 participants had the opportunity to work with renowned arts organizations in Taiwan, Singapore and Australia respectively during their 10 to 12 weeks internship. Through observation and participation, the participants not only had a glimpse of the differences between Hong Kong and overseas arts groups, but also learnt about the programming and management practices of our foreign counterparts. Our FAME fellows have now successfully completed the internship programme. HKAAA have invited the 4 participants to share their experience, hoping to broaden local arts administrators’ horizons and inspiring minds, with the ultimate goal of benefitting our local arts and cultural scene.

About the Seminar

 

What exactly makes a competent producer? Does having a producer mean running a business model?

 

Miss Jackie Zhang from Shanghai Dramatic Arts Centre recently made a few remarks on her opinion about the roles of a producer at the China Culture and Entertainment Industry Summit in Beijing. Miss Zhang illustrated the procedures in tackling the difficulty of arts organization management in a four key points. First, issues concerning copyright purchase and management ought to be addressed, with the producer’s property rights clearly defined. Second, a thorough mechanism of projects declaration, vetting, execution, summarizing and distribution needs to be established in order to have master control over the proportion of capital investment in collaboration projects and annual profit and non-profit making project scale. Third, the producer should help guide the creative minds of the theatre to adjust their mindset and be prepared for drawbacks and hardships in the beginning. The producer also has to provide sufficient training for young directors and actors, dedicate to cultivate a long-term relationship of cooperation with the directors and playwrights and above all, always remember to learn and grow from mistakes. Miss Zhang further pointed out that producers should break out of static production patterns and be up with the times in employing development strategies by making good use of the many new social media resources.

 

Ever since its company reform in 2009, the Shanghai Dramatic Arts Centre has adapted the producer-oriented operation model. Currently, the Center's management funds has a high self-sustaining rate of over 60%, and is a pioneer among fellow performing art groups as innovative and mature model.

 

The global art environment is rapidly changing. Topping up are various cultural projects locally – the implementation of various infrastructure of the West Kowloon Cultural District, renovation and launching of numerous old and new Leisure and Cultural Services Department venues, as well as heritage architectural projects such as the Central Police Station Revitalization Project. Now is especially relevant to explore on innovative and proactive ways in operating the theatre.

 

The Hong Kong Arts Administrators Association is pleased to have invited Miss Jackie Zhang, Vice Manager and Director of Actors Department, Shanghai Dramatic Arts Centre, to share her valuable experience on how the Centre operates with producers as the central point in planning and promoting theatrical productions.

 

Through this seminar, local performing arts operators can interact and take reference from mainland productions on the experiences and strategic planning in producing self-financing creations, facilitating discussion in the possible long term development of Hong Kong theatre and evaluating the positioning and responsibilities of the producer.  Besides, Jackie will address the challenges of being an effective producer with case studies.

 

To enrich the session, we have also invited Mr Louis Yu, Executive Director of Performing Arts, West Kowloon Cultural District Authority, as respondent. HKAAA's General Manager, Miss Winona Chan, will moderate the session.

About Shanghai Dramatic Arts Centre

The Shanghai Dramatic Arts Centre was established on January 23, 1995, after a merger between two acclaimed theater companies-- the Shanghai People's Art Theater and the Shanghai Youth Drama Troupe. Its founders are drama maestros Xia Yan , Huang Zuolin and Xiong Foxi.

 

Since its inception, the Centre has produced a number of works to reflect the nature of the times. The Centre has always attached much importance to cultural exchanges with international counterparts. They have staged more than 500 dramas by classical, modern and contemporary playwrights, both from the West and China.

 

The Centre boasts a number of established playwrights, directors, performers and stage artists, among whom more than 100 have been honored with various awards in drama, film and television. And seven performers -- Xi Meijuna, Lu Liang, Yi Zhusheng, Zhu Yi, Ye Mang, Tian Shui and Xia Zhiqing -- have received the Plum Blossom Award, the highest performance award in Chinese opera and drama.

 

The Centre often cooperates with drama artists from Japan, Britain, the United States, France, Australia, Russia and South Korea, producing a number of solid repertoires as a result of their joint efforts. Meanwhile, the Centre has performed in Japan, Singapore, Germany, South Korea, Hong Kong and Taiwan , winning great acclaim from local audiences.

 

The Shanghai Dramatic Arts Centre's objective is to become the most modern national theater in China. The Centre now boasts a modern drama plaza with three separate stages: The Arts Theater, Drama Salon and Studio D6. It also has two rehearsal studios for all types of theatrical productions.

Learn more about the momentous revival of Chinese modern art and the generation of artists who, with paint brush in hand, brought two cultural traditions together anew.

 

Paris has long been a European art and cultural hub where the liberal atmosphere enabled different streams of thought to burgeon and thrive, and since the 20th century this city has seen generations of Chinese artists hone their painting skills. Le French May is pleased to introduce this “Paris.Chinese Painting” exhibition at the Hong Kong Museum of Art, which will showcase the works of the 20th-century Chinese Masters who pioneered a revolution in Chinese painting art circles.

 

Before closing its doors for renovation work until 2017, the Hong Kong Museum of Art will host this fascinating exhibition with around 100 pieces of 20th-century Chinese paintings from the museum and major French institutions that include the Musée Cernuschi, the Musée Guimet, Paris, Musée d’art Moderne de la ville de Paris and the Centre Georges Pompidou. Collectively these paintings illustrate the impact that the exotic French experience had on generations of Chinese artists, and their influence on the development and reformation of Chinese painting in the last century as expressed by artists such as Xu Beihong, Lin Fengmian, Pan Yuliang, Sanyu, Pang Xunqin, Zao Wou-ki, Chu Teh-chun and Wu Guanzhong

 

During the interwar period Paris was the seat of great intellectual and artistic activity. The city attracted painters, sculptors and writers from all over the world, among them, many young Chinese. For them, the modernisation of their own country implied a necessary Westernisation. Hungry for new knowledge and reforms, they experienced Parisian life, freeing themselves from their millenary traditions and way of living. In taking inspiration from the French repertoire and becoming more familiar with Western techniques and concepts, such as studying the nude, composing realistic portraits, intimate scenes or simple street sketches, they initiated a true revival in Chinese art. After WWII, a younger generation of Chinese artists explored a new kind of interaction with the Paris art scene and developing Chinese abstract landscapes.

 

This exhibition is presented by Le French May and the Leisure and Cultural Services Department, jointly organized by the Hong Kong Museum of Art, the Musée Cernuschi and the Musée Guimet, Paris, with support from Bank of China (Hong Kong) Private Banking.

About the Seminar

Ticketing platform is essential to the promotion and sales of programmes and events. Regardless of the scale of events, ticket sales is a direct reflection to audience participation. Managing the ticket sales can oftentimes be a challenge to organizations' already straining resources. However, if the right ticketing service is identified and employed,  arts organizations' administrative burden can definitely be alleviated.

 

Recent years have seen a blossom in the variety of arts performances and related activities. In response to the increased needs by such variety and its audiences, ticketing systems reformed and alternate ones emerged. Do these ticketing systems provide supplementary services other than simply selling event tickets? Exactly what services do the alternate systems provide? 

 

HKAAA is pleased to have invited the masterminds behind major ticketing systems to talk about their respective systems. Mr. Esmond Chan, Senior Manager (Ticketing), Leisure and Cultural Services Department will introduce the URBTIX system updates; Mr. Mike Hill, Festival Director and Co-Founder of Ticketflap / Clockenflap and Ms. Jacqueline Lo, Project Manager of Art-mate will respectively introduce their independent ticketing systems, as well as other supplementary services available.

About Ticketflap

Ticketflap was born out to create a common sense approach to ticketing which the founders felt has been sorely missing in Hong Kong.

The team of Ticketflap runs a festival called Clockenflap. Creating the ticketing mechanics for the festival was always just the first step, before then being able to offer the same services to other event organisers and fans.

Ticketflap can be a place which not only makes buying tickets and getting in to events as painless and seamless an experience as it should be, but to also create a platform that enables all of us to discover more of the fantastic happenings taking place across our wonderful city.

Hong Kong has been viewed as an international financial centre for years.  Its creative industry and local cultural ‘soft power’, however, seems to have been underrated.  
 
Today, the presentation of a city’s cultural profile has become a key strategy in demonstrating its vibrancy and quality of life.  Hong Kong has rich heritage resources, world-class performing arts groups, internationally acclaimed filmmakers, writers, visual artists and designers: how can we tell the world about this aspect of our city?
 
The 2014 Cultural Leadership Summit - Branding Hong Kong Through the Arts, co-organised by HKAAA and HKU ACLP, focuses on this question.  We have invited more than 40 of the best minds from Hong Kong and overseas in the arts and creative industry to join us in discussion on issues such as the involvement the cultural sector in city branding, the branding of Hong Kong through cooperation with other countries, the significance of cultural diplomacy in promoting a city to the world, and the roles and identities of branding partners.
 
We look forward to your participation to explore ways forward and to discover new opportunities.

For the first time in Asia and for a strictly limited season, the Consulate General of Italy in Hong Kong and the Asia Society Hong Kong Centre, with the generous support from The Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust, are proud to present Light and Shadows — Caravaggio • The Italian Baroque Master. The exhibition will be held from March 12 to April 13, 2014.

 

This is an once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see one of the most famous paintings in the world, by one of the greatest and pioneering artists. The exhibition also brings Hong Kong audiences up-close with one of Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio's most important works, Supper at Emmaus.

 

A haunting Baroque masterpiece, Supper at Emmaus (1605-06) was painted during a dark period in the artist's life when he was exiled after committing an act of manslaughter. It depicts Jesus Christ revealing himself to his disciples following his resurrection, in the town of Emmaus. It is a portrait of a flawed humanity, vulnerable to sin and expresses the artist's desire for salvation offered by faith in Christ.

 

Also on display are contemporary works by four Hong Kong artists — Chow Chun-fai, So Hing-keung, Tsang Kin-wah, and Wucius Wong — which showcase how techniques found in Caravaggio's paintings were adopted centuries later. The exhibition is curated by Professor Frank Vigneron of the Department of Fine Arts, the Chinese University of Hong Kong.

 

Organized around the themes of "shadows," "theatricality," "mystery," and "realism," this exhibition illustrates different characteristics of Caravaggio's style, which were so influential that they shaped the painting practices of many later European artists.

 

"Shadows" emphasize aesthetic choices rooted in the European liturgical tradition of its time; Tsang Kin-wah's projection of moving texts both relates to darkness as a setting and illustrates its ideological content.

 

"Theatricality" not only relates to the use of strong contrasts between light and darkness but also to the choice of powerful and simple gestures to accentuate the action of the painting; the photographic montages of Chow Chun-fai are a very personal take on this dramatic style.

 

"Mystery" represents the sense of spirituality emanating from Caravaggio's paintings; Wucius Wong's paintings exemplify a philosophical choice rooted in a concept borrowed from Taoist philosophy that can be compared to the darkness of Christian cosmology.

 

"Realism" is a characteristic of Caravaggio's painting that has had a profound influence on the whole of European art; the photographic portraits of So Hing-keung are reminiscent of Caravaggio's interest in using the disenfranchised as models for his historical and religious figures.

 

Through the interaction of Caravaggio's famous painting with works by four Hong Kong artists, each representing an aspect of contemporary art practices, audiences can experience a contemporary perspective on the art of one of the greatest and most influential artists of all time.

 

A 6-month of Italian art and cultural educational program, made possible by The Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust’s donation, has also been organized as an extension of the exhibition to arouse the public interests on Caravaggio’s works and Italian arts.

 

The exhibition is made possible with the support of the Consulate General of Italy in Hong Kong and Macao and the Italian Cultural Institute in Hong Kong in collaboration with the Italian Ministry of Cultural Heritage and Activities and Tourism and Pinacoteca di Brera in Milan.

Presented by: Hong Kong Arts Administrators Association (HKAAA)  

 

 

Getting young audiences to come to theatres remains a big challenge in the age of the internet.  Besides, young people are not the audiences of tomorrow, they are the audiences (and participants) of today.  They are entitled to the same cultural rights as adults. 

 

In view of the growing awareness of the importance that arts can bring personal, cultural and social benefits, and are instrumental in the development of a creative city and the enjoyment of a quality life, how to bring theatre experiences to the younger generation has also been one of the widely discussed issues in the arts sector or education sector in Hong Kong.

 

Despite the effort put into young audiences building by arts organisations, local theatre groups, schools, and the Government in Hong Kong for more than decades, the number of young audiences does not have a significant increase and there is no sustainable growth of audience according to various researches and reports.

 

To address the above issues, with great pleasure, the Hong Kong Arts Administrators Association (HKAAA) has invited Mr. Patrick McIntyre, Executive Director of Sydney Theatre Company (STC), to share STC’s experiences and insights into young audiences building.  

 

STC has been the leading force in Australian drama since its inception in 1978.  Apart from being widely acclaimed for producing theatre of the highest standard, it is also renowned for its education and community engagement.  STC’s productions not only contain strong curriculum connections, but also provide incredible learning and life experience for young people.  As the state theatre company of New South Wales, it also produces a significant education programme for schools, STC Ed, as well as nurturing developing artists through its Next Stage.

 

STC is also envisioned in providing teacher professional learning through School DramaTM, the Arts Conference for Educators and other programmes to use theatre and drama to improve student outcomes.

 

A workshop presented by HKAAA, Patrick will talk about how to formulate strategies for young audience building, identifying the right productions for young audience, developing partnership with different sectors (including funders), addressing challenges of young audience building with case studies.

 

Speaker:  Patrick McIntyre, Executive Director of Sydney Theatre Company
