“Tradition to Contemporary: Ink Painting and Artistic Development in 20th-century China” Exhibition

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.


《鑑古賞今: 二十世紀中國的水墨與藝術發展》展覽

香港大學(港大)美術博物館將於二零一八年八月二十四日至十一月十八日展出中國繪畫展覽《鑑古賞今——二十世紀中國的水墨與藝術發展》。是次展覽向公眾展示本館的永久館藏。作品追溯了香港本土水墨畫的演變,當中包括多位協助建立起城市藝術風采和博物館藏品的大師。

是次展覽和出版的圖錄讓觀眾綜覽個別繪畫作品的來源和美學特質,並香港、中國內地及海外的二十世紀中國藝術家、策展人、收藏家及學者之間的文化交流。展覽內容涉及藝術家個人及其網絡、師生之間的關係;因著不計其數的畫家的慷慨,本館的館藏得以發展,他們的作品構成了本館今日教育工作的基石。自一九五零年代向公眾展出館藏伊始,本館即與這些畫家和他們的作品緊密相連,並積極記錄了藝術家們的天賦和香港藝術風采。
