Visual Arts Centre launches new Artist in Residence Programme

To further its support of Hong Kong art, the Hong Kong Visual Arts Centre has organised a new series of the Artist in Residence Programme, inviting participation of the award-winning artists of the“Hong Kong Art Biennial 2005”, including Fung Yat-fung, Zheng Bo, Cedric Maridet and Ching Chin-wai.

Each participating artist has been invited to stay in the Visual Arts Centre for three months and to use the centre's studio facilities. The artists conduct talks, demonstrations and workshops in return, encouraging a sharing of experience between artists and the public. The Visual Arts Centre also organises a 10-day exhibition to display the works of the artists during the residence as well as the works of the students from the workshops.

The first exhibition organised under this programme --“Traces of Tranquility–The Calligraphy of Fung Yat-fung” opened today (September 15) at the Visual Arts Centre and will run until September 25. It displays Fung Yat-fung's prized work “Ode of Hai Ou” and his latest version of“Shupu”, as well as 20 other works in clerical, running and cursive styles. The“Sound Installation by Cedric Maridet” exhibition will be held from November 10 to 20. Activities and an exhibition by Ching Chin-wai will be held in January and May next year respectively.

Since 1992, the Visual Arts Centre has presented 28 Artist in Residence Programmes – 23 local artists and five overseas.

The Visual Arts Centre is located at 7A Kennedy Road, Central, Hong Kong. It is open daily except Tuesdays from 10am to 9pm. Admission is free. For enquiries, call 2521 3008.
