TRADITION TO CONTEMPORARY: INK PAINTING AND ARTISTIC DEVELOPMENT IN 20TH-CENTURY CHINA
< Back

24 Aug 2018 - 18 Nov 2018

The University Museum and Art Gallery (UMAG) of the University of Hong Kong (HKU) will present the Chinese painting exhibition Tradition to Contemporary: Ink Painting and Artistic Development in 20th-century China. Curated from artworks within the museum’s permanent collection, the exhibition will be open to the public from 24 August through 18 November 2018. Works trace the evolution of ink painting in Hong Kong, and include many of the masters that have helped to build the city's art scene and museum collections.

The exhibition and its associated catalogue offers audiences a broad overview of the provenance and aesthetic quality of individual works, and the cultural interactions among twentieth-century Chinese artists, curators, collectors and scholars in Hong Kong, mainland China and abroad. It makes reference to individuals and their networks, to teacher-student relationships and to the generosity of the numerous painters who have helped us to grow the museum’s holdings, and whose work constitutes the foundation of our educational work today. Since initiating our publicly accessible collection in the 1950s, UMAG has been closely connected to the development of these painters and their work, and has actively documented the evolution of their artistic talents and the Hong Kong art scene.
