Exhibition by Alumni of Hong Kong Art School
The Hong Kong Art School (a division of Hong Kong Arts Centre) was striding into its twenty-first year of development, as a boutique art school, the School would continue to embrace creativity and flexibility, exploring ways to meet the future needs in arts education. In the 21st century, we were aware that diversity plays a key role in art-making, involving also the subject matters and content; besides, the approach of displaying and showcasing artwork might also had to be revisited in view of the changing social and global landscape caused by the pandemic. The interaction between the artwork and the viewers was brought to another level, viewers were not only appreciating art, but also being stimulated by art to further reflect on their own, initiate discussion or get more involved.
In this exhibition, three alumni-artists from Hong Kong Art School, LEE Boon Ying, YUEN Kam Wa Magus and SIU Man Kit Kate, were invited to work together and gather focal points from the diverse, as well as to search for breakthroughs from the everyday life. They were generally all having sentiments towards everyday objects or certain social issues, and they always turned their experiences and concerns into motivations for their creations. Despite the fact that they adopted different approaches, mediums and methodologies; and they were working on different topics ranging from personal interests to social livelihood their works share something in common, they all documented and revealed everyday stories that people might not normally be aware of, or paying great attention to.
