Over the past years, the department has been fostering a broad spectrum of art talents in Hong Kong and has made significant contribution to the art circle locally and internationally. As a youthful part of the local art scene, students from the Department of Fine Arts, the Chinese University of Hong Kong are passionately preparing for “The Art of CUHK 2018”.
Similar to the previous years, “The Art of CUHK 2018” provides a platform for students to exercise their autonomy: the formation and structure of the exhibition committee, administrative work, curation, publication, sponsorship seeking and the setting up of the exhibition venue are all coordinated by our students. The event will last for a period of few months; there will be several exhibitions and activities such as workshops and talks, that will provide an opportunity for our students to showcase their hard work. Also, the series of events will invite guests from the art circle and the public to visit our annual show for further exchange. Furthermore, public seminars will be held for promoting academic discussions, where art professionals will be invited to share their insights on topics relate to art, archive and social engagement.
