Have you ever thought about appreciating an artwork while chatting with its creator? The 4th Edition of Art Next Expo invites a group of local artists to share and communicate with art lovers.
Why it matters:
儘管在過去兩年中面臨諸多挑戰，香港藝術家們仍以其非凡的創造力和想像力逆流而上，衝破難關。十月之際，新藝潮博覽會將為大家展示香港當代藝術的最新面貌。是次博覽會將會分為三大系列，分別為新藝潮藝術家系列、多元藝術系列以及特別計劃系列「 Next +」。與以往不同，本屆藝博會將邀請超過70位新藝潮藝術家親臨現場與大家交流並分享其創作意念及心得。
Despite the numerous challenges faced over the last two years, the Hong Kong artists boat against the current with their fabulous creativity and imaginations. In October, the Art Next Expo will show everyone the latest look of Hong Kong contemporary art. The expo will be divided into three major series, namely the Art Next Artists Series, the Diversity Series and Special Project Series “Next +”. Unlike the past, this year’s art fair will invite over 70 Art Next Artist artists to the expo to chat with everyone and share their ideas behind.
- New Art Trend Artist Series: Artists in this series will compete for “Art Next Artist Awards”, which will be selected by a panel of artists, including the renowned Hong Kong artist Mr. CHUNG Tai Fu; Professor HO Siu Kee, Associate Professor of Fine Arts at The Chinese University of Hong Kong, and, Hong Kong contemporary Chinese ink artist Mr. KOON Wai Bong. This series of works are of different styles with a wide array of mediums, including oil, acrylics, ink, watercolor, sculpture, photography and mixed media, showing the latest strokes of Hong Kong contemporary art.
- Diversity Series: Various art units will present diverse and colorful artistic works. For instance, Jun’s Embroidery, an organization dedicated to promoting embroidery art; Taiwanese artist HUANG Wan Ling will showcase her works that express contemporary aesthetics through traditional ink; “Cheongsam Connect” will present a series of works that integrate the traditional costume with contemporary art; Michael LAM will demonstrate leather painting art on-site.
- 特別計劃系列 Next +：Next Mart 11 位藝術家帶來超過 80 件充滿玩味、時尚感和潮流觸覺的「藝術玩具」(Art Toy)主題展覽，多媒體藝術方面，有聲音、嗅覺、表演藝術，掀動五感。新藝潮「特邀系列」，參加者有本地具代表性藝術家例如徐沛之、胡浚諺、陳世樂(阿三)及雕塑藝術家鍾偉倫等，值得期待。
