Legacy and Creations – Ink Art vs Ink Art and Art vs Art
Date: 27 May - 28 Aug 2011

Following on the success of the two large-scale exhibitions, namely “Legacy and Creations – Ink Art vs Ink Art” and “Legacy and Creations – Art vs Art” held in Shanghai to coincide with “Expo 2010 Shanghai”, the Hong Kong Museum of Art takes the pleasure to share the creative works by local artists in these two exhibitions with the audience in Hong Kong.

The exhibitions feature ink art and cross-media works covering sculpture, painting, ceramic, installation and video. The “Ink vs Ink” exhibition is both a retrospective and prospective overview of the ink painting tradition in Hong Kong, revealing the development of new ink painting and contemporary calligraphy in Hong Kong as a metropolis where East meets West. It also celebrates the re-vitalization of the ink tradition and its evolution into a major force in global contemporary art through new techniques and approaches. The “Art vs Art” exhibition lays out the impact of a global culture on contemporary art from a latitudinal perspective. The participating artists who traverse freely among various realms of creations explore different materials and symbols, resulting in new interpretations and interplay of Hong Kong contemporary art.
