Contemporary Asian Art 2018: An Insider’s View
posted by Faculty of Arts for HKU and Public
Event Type: Continuing Professional Development Short Course
Event Nature: Culture and Arts

Event Details

This program provides a broad spectrum of views into the world of contemporary Asian art. It provides art historical training that includes learning how to look and write about contemporary Asian art. With this as a foundation, we examine the market as a platform for contemporary art and the power of mega-art events and institutions to shift cultural landscapes. The final day will share meaningful ways to engage with contemporary Asian art, whether through careers or collecting. The teaching format includes seminars, site visits and discussions with industry experts. No prior experience in the arts is necessary, although we encourage active participation through group exercises, discussions and networking lunches.

Jointly taught and organized by the University of Hong Kong’s Faculty of Arts and Christie’s Education, this five-day program leverages the expertise of both institutions. The art historical portion of the program is conceived and delivered by the world-class faculty at the Fine Arts Department of the University of Hong Kong, while the art market-related component is developed by Christie’s Education.
