支持本地藝術力量,把藝術品帶回家 | AFFORDABLE ART FAIR 2022

第九屆香港Affordable Art Fair將於2022年8月4日至7日於香港會議展覽中心舉行,超過60間本地及國際畫廊和參展單位將展出逾千件精心挑選的當代藝術作品,當中超過50家來自香港。

The 9th edition of Affordable Art Fair Hong Kong (AAF) will return to the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre from 4 to 7 August 2022, showcasing thousands of contemporary artworks from over 60 hand-picked local and international galleries and exhibitors, of which over 50 of them are from Hong Kong.

Why it matters:
Affordable Art Fair一直積極推動香港藝術的多元發展,讓本地的藝術喜好者認識新晉的香港藝術家及其作品。活動包括:以「Welcome to the Zoo」為題的「Young Talent Hong Kong x Next Gen」展覽項目,聯同26位香港新晉藝術家展現本地藝術力量;來自不同領域的藝術家以香港人、香港日常、香港遊樂場等作靈感的「特別項目」的大型裝置;與香港創意單位及慈善團體的合作展覽和活動,為觀眾帶來更豐富的藝術體驗。

AAF has been active in promoting local art and providing a platform for local art lovers to discover new and emerging Hong Kong artists and their thought-provoking works. Young Talent Hong Kong x Next Gen plays with the theme Welcome to the Zoo and exhibits the artworks by 26 emerging local artists, representing a spectrum of individuality to create a unified whole. Special Project with large-scale installations inspired by the people and everyday life of Hong Kong demonstrates the variety of art forms by artists in diverse disciplines, while an array of programmes collaborated with various like-minded Hong Kong creative units and non-profit organisations indulge the audiences of all ages in a rich experience of art.

4 Highlights:
.今年由Jonathan Jay Lee策展的「Young Talent Hong Kong x Next Gen」展覽項目以「Welcome to the Zoo」為題,將聯同26位香港新晉藝術家於這個平台上展現本地藝術力量,展示他們眼中的香港,也是寫給香港的情書。

.來自不同領域的藝術家,包括Jonathan Jay Lee、伍穎欣、何慧恩、許亦宏等,將特別為本屆香港Affordable Art Fair創作「特別項目」大型裝置,以香港人、香港日常、香港遊樂場等作靈感,透過截然不同的形式展出他們的創意。

.藝博會每年均會與不同的創意單位及慈善團體合作,今屆邀請了藝術辦館Artube Store、賽馬會創意藝術中心、顯能創作、口罩品牌RAZE等,共同推動香港藝術普及化,促進本地藝術生態圈,亦為觀眾帶來更豐富的藝術體驗。

.為了培育和啟發年輕人對藝術的認識,Affordable Art Fair與不同機構,如香港藝術治療師協會和Art Loop,合辦一系列適合一家大小的工作坊和導賞團,以增進他們的身心靈健康,促進親子樂趣,同時啟發下一代延續香港藝術界的活力。

.Curated by Jonathan Jay Lee, Young Talent Hong Kong x Next Gen plays with the theme Welcome to the Zoo and exhibits the artworks by 26 emerging local artists, representing the spectrum of individuality to create the unified whole we can be. They will demonstrate their ability to envision and interpret a common narrative through distinctive perspectives of the city they live in, transcending their sentiment toward this land through their artworks like a love letter to Hong Kong.

.One of the spotlight programs of Affordable Art Fair is the Special Project with artists from different disciplines. Invited by Affordable Art Fair, these artists, including Jonathan Jay Lee, Amber Ng, Sophia Ho Tung, and Yihong Hsu, specifically create the large-scale installations for the fair, with inspiration from the people and everyday life in Hong Kong.

.Each year, AAF works with different like-minded creative units and non-profit organisations as partners. This year, AAF invites ARTube Store, The Jockey Club Creative Arts Centre (JCCAC), Keenable Creation, and RAZE, bringing synergy in promoting the democratisation of art in Hong Kong and boosting the local art ecosystem.

.To foster and inspire young people for a better understanding of arts, AAF collaborates with different organisations such as The Hong Kong Association of Art Therapists (HKAAT) and Art Loop to co-organise a series of family-friend art therapy workshops and educational art tours, enhancing well-being and mental health through art.
