Seminar for "A Survey of Western Media Art in Pre-1960s Hong Kong (Phase I)" (Cantonese)
In early 2015, the Hong Kong Museum of Art and Hong Kong Art History Research Society embarked on a collaborative research project entitled the "Survey of Western Media Art in Pre-1960s Hong Kong". The aim of the project is to investigate the development and influence of Western media art in Hong Kong from the early 1930s to the pre-1960s, through an in-depth study of important artists of the time, their interaction and activities within this specific area.
This seminar will focus on Western painting practices in Hong Kong. Not only will the principal investigator review his research findings of the project with our invited scholar, but an open dialogue with representatives from the "Painting On and On" Project will also be conducted to facilitate discussion between scholars and art practitioners on the topic of artistic practices over the past few decades.
