(2017/07/08 - 07/23) Reverie - Bachelor of Arts (Fine Art) Graduation Exhibition 2017 New

The Bachelor of Arts (Fine Art) (BAFA) Graduation Exhibition, organized and co-presented by RMIT University and Hong Kong Art School, brings together the works from more than 40 graduating students of the BAFA programme, encompassing creative media of Ceramics, Painting, Photography, Sculpture and Multimedia installation art.

The theme of the exhibition, “Reverie”, describes the transient detachment of the students’ mind from reality, which opens up themselves to unlimited thoughts. When ideas can transverse freely through their minds, thoughts will no longer be bounded by presumed restrictions, leading to an array of ideas and emotions being incorporated into the artworks.

A guided tour and a sharing hosted by the BAFA alumni, which relates the Graduation Exhibition to the ongoing art journey of an art graduate, will be held alongside the exhibition. All are welcome to join.
